Birdwatching at Uluru

For keen twitchers this is a fantastic time to visit Uluru - right now many of the park’s birds are breeding.

If you head to the Cultural Centre you can see Australian hobbys and their families while along the park’s main road brown falcons can be seen tending their young.

But the Mutitjulu waterhole is one of the best places to go for birdwatching - zebra finches, red-black kingfishers, fairy martins, tawny frogmouths and button quails are regular visitors.

Early morning is the best time to see the most birds. But at any time of day you might also be able to see some of the parks more active reptiles including the iconic thorny devil as well as the central-netted and military dragons.
