We are planning a trip to Australia in December and being peak season the cost to travel to Ayers Rock is becoming quite substantial Gwen being compared to other destinations in Australia. Hence is it worthwhile to make the trip to see Ayers Rock with a four year old. Thanks for the advise.

    It's very big and impressive against the wilderness but from my memory not a lot around it. Depends if you are going for the journey there also i.e. driving through that region. Personally though I wouldn't bother going back and for what I imagine the price to be I think you can find just as interesting and more stunning places nearby to visit, go snorkelling on one of the reefs or to the Blue Mountains or drive through Tasmania.

    I went there as a kid and do not remembering being to inspired by it. over 4 years ago

    Not with a four year old , if you drive there from anywhere in oz it's going to be a long trip ,if you fly in its expensive and though it is one of the wonders of the world , there is nothing much else to do around the rock ,whole lot of good people live and work there , but it is expensive

    Yes, it's absolutely wonderful; I've been about 5 times and there are so many things to see in the centre of Australia provided that you have wheels... But, the main reason not to go is actually just the time of year. December is extremely hot so camping will be really uncomfortable and it'll really ruin your experience. I recommend going in winter, which is from about April until September. Hope you enjoy your trip anyway :-) over 4 years ago
