Yulara takes its name from the local Aboriginal words for "howling" and "dingoes," which conveys the town's isolated location in the Outback.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Walpa Gorge and Kuniya Walk. Change things up with these side-trips from Yulara: Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park (Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga & Valley of the Winds). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Uluru, get engrossed in the history at Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, identify plant and animal life at Red Desert Reptiles, and make a trip to Anangu Uwankaraku Punu Aboriginal corporation.
