Anyone booking flights to Australia should visit Uluru, one travel writer has stated.

People who have booked flights to Australia should try to ensure that their holiday includes a visit to the country’s red centre and Uluru.

This is the recommendation of Eleanor Goggin, who wrote for the Irish Independent that seeing the giant sandstone landmark at sunset “was spellbinding”.

She added: “And what better way to enjoy its ever changing copper, ochre and orange hues than sipping a glass of champagne.”

Ms Goggin also explained that the group returned the following morning to see the rock at sunrise, which was “equally spectacular”.

Another natural spectacle in the desert surrounding Uluru – which is also known as Ayers Rock – that travellers should take time to see is Kings Canyon, she added.

Tourists can also take a walk around Kata Tjuta, another unusual rock formation rising up from the flat landscape, which is a sacred Aborigine site.

Also known as the Olgas, these rounded hills in the same red sandstone as Uluru make an interesting backdrop for a day’s walking.
