Travel Vision: Explore Uluru virtually

Font Size:

Many of us have adjusted out travel plans because of border closures, opting instead to dream of domestic destinations. While health fears, restrictions and closed state borders are keeping many of us at home, virtual travel can still take us to places we’ve only dreamed of. 

If you’ve been hoping to explore the Red Centre of the country, you’re in luck.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park has paired up with Google Story Sphere to create a 360-degree interactive virtual tour that allows you to explore the trails and lookouts surrounding Uluru.

Guided by Anangu traditional owners, you are able to explore five ‘story spheres’ including Kuniya Tjukurpa, Mutitjulu Waterhole and Kuniya Walk.

“Sometimes visitors come here, and they see a beautiful place, but they don’t understand the culture and the law and the knowledge and the history that this place holds,” a traditional owner explains in the Talinguru Nyakunytjaka tour.

See the written language that expresses the creation stories and other stories of the land and people who have lived on it for more than 80,000 years. Hear the stories and songs of the traditional owners of the land to better understand the history and knowledge of the Anangu people and this sacred site.

Those who have been lucky enough to visit the jaw-dropping site in the past will likely gain a deeper and richer understanding of the area and its people through the virtual tours. The beautiful imagery also promises to bring back memories of the vast landscapes and vivid colours. 

Would you like to visit Uluru, or have you been in the past? Do you think these virtual tours do the dramatic landscape justice?
