Walk, Hike or Ride Around the Rock
Petermann NT 0872, Australia
Ayers Rock is arguably more impressive up close; its seemingly smooth surface is covered in divets, scars and caves. While it’s considered incredibly disrespectful to the Anungu people to climb Ayers Rock, it’s highly recommended that you take the time to explore around it. Walking around the Rock is a 9-kilometre, or close to 6-mile, round-trip so remember to wear good walking shoes and pack a bottle of water!
