Uluru: One of Australia's Best Landmarks

At more than 1,000 feet tall and close to six miles around, Uluru (also called Ayers Rock) is one of Australia's most famous, spiritual, and beautiful natural wonders. Visit at dawn or dusk when the light makes it seem as if the landmark is glowing red.

The rock has spiritual significance to the Anangu people, and a great way to learn more about the cultural history of the site is to go on a tour with an Aboriginal guide.

End your visit to Uluru with a Sounds of Silence dinner, which offers a great view of the attraction at dusk, followed by stargazing at night.

Where is it? Central Australia. Fly to Sydney's International Airport (check prices) and take a domestic flight to Connellan Airport (check prices).

Where to Stay? Get out in the wild by "camping" at Longitude 131, a collection of 15 private tents at the gateway of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

What Else Should I Know? The park's hours vary by season, so consult the official website for times before you go.

Who's it For? Photographers, spiritual folk, and adventurers.
