Yulara takes its name from the local Aboriginal words for "howling" and "dingoes," which conveys the town's isolated location in the Outback.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Sat): explore the activities along Mutitjulu Waterhole and then trek along Kuniya Walk. On the next day, identify plant and animal life at Red Desert Reptiles, learn more about the world around you at Wintjiri Arts + Museum, then take in the exciting artwork at Walkatjara Art Uluru, and finally take in the dramatic natural features at Walpa Gorge.
