July/Aug overnight in Uluru

How's it like sleeping overnight in a swag at Uluru camping grounds in July/Aug? Is it way too cold and unbearable? Any recommendations to stay warm?

Or what happens when it rains? I'm joining one of those 3D2N tours that includes camping 2 nights in a swag at Uluru :)

The chance of rain is very remote so I wouldn't worry about that (it is the desert after all).

Yes it gets cold (can be below freezing). Not a problem if you have a really good sleeping bag etc. but I would make sure you bring thermals and a woolly hat. The good thing is it warms during the day so you can thaw out.

The above posts have covered it all!

Most of the tour companies allow for the colder nights with the right equipment supplied by them.

Also, the stars and the night sky you will experience is fabulous, better than a hotel stay.
