    Perfect timing

    Holy shit it’ll be warm then.

    Take some insect repellent too.

      I don't think insect repellent works well on flies, which are the main insect you'll see. Mosquitoes are pretty non-existent in central Australia, no pools of water for them to breed in.

      20 years ago, when I lived there, the tourist shops sold beekeeper's nets, to go over your head and hat. They work well for the flies, which can be infuriating. Locals learn "the flick", waving your hand in front of your face, but it takes about a month to pick up the skill and effectively shoo the flies away. The most annoying are the Australian Bush Flies, these are different to the flies you find in coastal areas, they are barely discouraged by hand waving.

    In the middle of Summer! no thanks

    Don't go. The national Park closes from like 10am to late arvo during summer, as far as I remember. So you'd have to plan your hiking etc around that.

    Cue a million reports from lefties demanding that "Ayers Rock" be changed to "Uluru".

    "Ayers Rock" is correct as it's the name of the airport.

      Maybe you should change the photo then? ;)

      More like cue confected outrage at an objection that doesn't exist. Zero reports at the time of posting this.

      In Australia we adopt a dual naming policy, meaning that both names are in official use and are equally valid.

      I've also never heard of people referring to their holiday destination by using the local airport's official name.

        Oh no, I’ve got an upcoming trip but I fly into one airport and out of the other. Where am I going? Heathrow or Gatwick?!

      I'm a "leftie" and I know it as Ayer's Rock. Indigenous people call lots of things around Australia by their native tongue and that's fine. But my native tongue is English, so I call things in Australia in English. Each to their own.

      As a left handed person, I am not too concerned with this. Also this is the first I’ve heard of this.

    Cant find accommodation too!

    So not a good time of year to go then?

      If you're not used to central Australia's dry heat, probably not. When you get off the plane, you'll feel like somebody opened an oven in front of you, and that feeling doesn't go away. It takes two or three weeks to acclimatize, unlikely you'll be there that long as a tourist.

      The middle of Autumn through to the middle of Spring is probably best for people from coastal areas. It's cold at night, but rapidly becomes comfortable by 9am or so.

        Excellent advice, pretty much spot on.

        +1 on that. We went in August and it had been a good wet season so there were wild flowers everywhere; I think it would be unbearable in summer.

          If you've lived in an inland area, you get used to the dry air, and the heat isn't bad. I's mainly the perception. Anyone arriving there will go "Wow, this is different!", and the main difference is the heat, so that's the overriding perception. It makes the heat seem worse than it actually is. That the landscape looks dry and barren enhances that perception.

          Once you have lived there for a few months, your perceptions change. I now live in Brisbane, and I find Brisbane to feel hotter. In central Australia, when you sweat, it does cool you down. In Brisbane, you just get wet, because of the high humidity. There are humid days in Central Australia too, but they're pretty rare, maybe three per year. Once you get used to the climate, central Australia is lovely, you can wear a tee-shirt and shorts year-round. And after about six months, you'll stop looking at the landscape and saying "dry, barren, yuck". The landscape around Alice Springs is really beautiful, but you have to be there six months before you can appreciate it.

          In central Australia, ALWAYS carry a good supply of water with you. You can very easily become dehydrated without realizing it. And take a couple of chap-sticks with you too, lips are the first casualty in dry air.

    It's a magical place. The stars at night are also amazing.

    •  

      And golden sunsets on most evenings, enhanced by dust high in the atmosphere. If there is rain, it clears the dust, and the sunsets aren't as good.

  •  

    Have people been snapping up tickets already? Cheapest MEL flights are now $197 it seems.

  •  

    The Segway tours around the base of the Rock are great fun! well worth the money IMO (and a lot easier than walking in hot weather)

  •  

    I often browse down the list of pics rather than reading the titles of posts, I thought this one was going to be for an OLED TV for a brief moment. Looks like a 4k screensaver!

    Thanks OP, scored a scorching weekend trip in late Feb. Dorm (4 bed) accom is ~$40 p/night. So not a bad way to see Ayers Rock on a budget.
