You absolutely can't climb it, don't even think about it, but there are oodles of wondrous experiences to be had in the vicinity.
Those who will miss climbing Uluru may also be missing the point - the rock is best seen from above or below or in the distance, not from on top.
Climbing is not the only way to experience Uluru.
This October, the Uluru climb will close for good, and celebration is in the air.
Experiencing the monolith from its encircling trail isn't limited to those on foot.
This more edgy accommodation is designed with more independent travellers in mind.
Whether you're on a camel or a Segway, it's dawn or dusk, Uluru is unmissable.
No matter how many times you've seen it in photos, nothing comes close to seeing this icon in real life. The giant monolith is best seen at sunset and dawn, as the light changes and the rock seems to glow a vivid shade of red. The 10km base-walk is a must-do, offering a different perspective on the site. Nearby Kata Tjuta, another impressive rock formation, completes this essential Central Australian experience.
