I’m summarizing four viewing areas in Uluru/Kata Tjuta National Park by means of google map and pictures I took during my visit. Hope it helps to plan your trip to the national park. Please note that photos all uploaded here were taken at the Mid-Sep.
1. WHEN TO VISIT It is said that Apr.-Nov. is better to visit Uluru. Due to harsh conditions in terms of high temperature and a large number of flies Dec.-Mar. is not recommended. September that we selected is absolutely ok. There were small number of flies and comfortable temperature for walking, meaning not too hot.
As to whether we can climb Uluru or we should not, my vote is Not to climb.
Today was the last day of the 4-day travel in Uluru-Kata Tjuta. We opted to go for sunrise viewing at the lookout between Uluru and Kata-Tjuta. All scenes this morning were breathtaking and are unforgettable.
Today’s main venue was Kings Canyon which is approx. 300 km away from Ayers Rock Resort. Departing time from our hotel was at 5:20.
ULURU SUNRISE VIEWING AREA The time of sunrise today (17-Sep) was 6:40. We departed our room at 5:35 to get to Sunrise Viewing Area, which took approx. 30min. There was a little bit walk needed from a parking in the viewing area to the view point, so arriving earlier is recommended.
Sunrise and Sunset over an ancient and spectacular rock in the middle of Australia, this is what I’ve been keen to see in Australia. Now we are approaching it.
