Ayres Rock (Katu Tjuta) is probably Australia's best known landmark. This is the largest single rock in the world and rises from the desert landscape like a mountain. This area is sacred to the local aboriginals and the rock has significant dreamtime significance for them. There are many tours available and nearby is the local holiday centre situated at Yulara. Voyages resorts operate the resort and accommodation caters for all levels from backpacker hostel through quality family accommodation to the magnificent sails in the desert. It is essential to book well in advance as there is nowhere else to stay in the region and it is a long 450 kilometre drive to Alice Springs for the next available room! Also along this road is the magnificent Kings Canyon and excellent accommodation is available at the local resort and caravan park.
