Went on the Mala Walk, which starts from the Mala car park at 10 am every morning. A very informative walk and talk about the aboriginal connection with the land. And talk about the Dreamtime. The only downside was there were 84 in the group and it was difficult to see and hear the Ranger at times. And no chance... More

This free walk with one of the rangers was amazing where we learnt so much about the rock Uluru and about the local Anangu Aboriginal people. It was an unforgettable tour with the very knowledgeable ranger taking time to explain everything from the geological aspects to the Tjukurpa which is the word that the Pitjantjatjara-speaking Anangu use to describe the...

We stumbled on this when we meet a couple of other campers and Uluru, they asked if we had seen the walk, we hadn't and it was not suggested when we booked in. This free walk and talk by National Park ranger was part of the highlight of our trip. The talk went for over 2 hours, we were a... More

If your visiting Uluru highly recommend the Mala walks high takes place daily at 8am from Carpark. this walk is free and done by a park ranger. The ranger was extremely personable; getting to know everyone before taking off. He also has excellent local knowledge, is patient in answering everyone's questions and doesn't judge when asking about climbing the Rock... More

Really nice historical and cultural walk. Highly recommended when you're at uluru! BTW, if you visit, don't climb the rock out of respect for the traditional owners and their culture.

This is a visually stunning and interesting tour led by a park ranger, as others have expressed. Steve, our ranger, had extensive knowledge of the history of the area, the natural surrounds and the stories shared by the Anagnu people. He took the time and effort to make sure that we were with the group at each stop (not hard... More

This was just gorgeous. And free! It was so lovely to hear the local stories and history from someone who is so obviously connected to the traditional owners - I was mesmerised. Thanks so much for this experience, Steve!

It was a good walk to hear the stories. Don't listen to all the rubbish about not climbing uluru if it is open then you should climb. It would be ice to hear about the geology about how the rock was really formed.

This is a must do ..... Free guide-led walk - ours was a large group so took a little longer - around two and a half hours. Led by a very interesting & knowledgable National Park Ranger guide assisted by one of the Anangu people. If you are thinking of climbing Uluru do this walk first and then think again.....
