The Ayers Rock, or Uluru as it is known today in the language of the traditional owners, is the symbol of Australia. It is a sacred place and visitors are discouraged to climb the rock to show respect, although it is not forbidden. Nice walks can be made around the base, where there are several ceremonial places. The Olgas, known as Katya Tutya, is a stunning range a bit further away from Uluru, which can be visited in a day from the small settlement at Uluru. Smaller in size but again a very powerful site, the Devil’s Marbles, or Karlu Karlu, is just off the main Darwin-Alice Springs highway. Camping is allowed in the area for a small fee (to be dropped in a locked box) and there are clean facilities. Even if you do not have your own transport, these places can be visited by coaches, they drop and pick up people at all important sites.
