Ayers Rock Vacations: Land of Dreamtime

In the heart of Australia’s Outback, you’ll find a sacred land of aboriginal tales and wild beauty. Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is known for its geological wonders, culture, and rugged wilderness. Ayers Rock rises 1,000 feet out of the bare desert landscape. Enjoy a guided bush hike around the great rock, go bird watching, or visit the aboriginal cultural center where you’ll meet local artists and storytellers. Whether you’re looking for a family vacation in the Outback or a romantic adventure under the desert stars, Liberty Travel can connect you with a stunning vacation package.
