Dreamtime stories and history

Steve was very knowledgeable and willing to share dreamtime stories and history of the rock. Kids and adults loved this walk. Must do when visiting the rock!

Free walk at base of Ularu. Worth doing with the ranger at 10am every day. Good info about the rock and sacred sites and stories about dreamtime. Do the bike ride after for $40 pp for as long as you like or the base walk which is on the same track.

Very informative, wonderful colours at twilight. This was the first tour from at 4pm till 7pm and was a great introduction and easy walk after arriving just after lunch. It is simply breathtaking being right up next to Uluru so soon after arrival.

The Mala walk is a short and easy walk with an expert guide around part of the base of the rock, I think at 8.00 or 9.00 in the morning depending on the time of year. The guide we had was informative and interesting. One began to understand the extraordinary significance of Uluru to its people. It was interesting to... More

A level, accessible walk with different things to see at every turn. Intriguing caves, some with rock paintings. Formations give insight into the lives and world of the Rock and the people who visited here for tens of thousands of year. The free ranger walk is excellent. Much of the walk is shaded, but I would still avoid it at... More

Our guide Clinton was terrific. Possessed with a great sense of humour and very Australian approach he provided not only an informative tour but one imbued with aboriginal perspectives and funny anecdotes as well more serious perspectives on rock itself. He was great with the kids on the tour as well and very willing to take questions. Overall a terrific... More

The free ranger guided tour leaves from The Mala carpark at 10am in the cooler months. It's a short, flat walk so easy to navigate. It takes about 2 hrs. The ranger tells the story of the Anangu people. The traditional law Tjukarpa , is the foundation of their culture. It tells of the relationships between people, plants, animals and... More

The day before we walked around on our own. It was much better doing the walk with the Rangers. They helped us understand the significance of Uluru to the local people. It was a big group but they handled it really well. Thanks Ranger Steve.

I second other reviewers - the content of the ranger guided walk is really well thought out for a diverse audience. It is grounded in Anangu knowledge and culture and even though I already knew a lot, I learned so much more and was touched heart and soul. The non- Indigenous guide on the day we were there was able... More
