Recommend the whole Base Walk - 10km easy, flat walk. Uluru is just so fascinating - the different faces of the rock change so dramatically. You can feel the history; it is such a special, peaceful place.

When we went, there were a lot of people on the walk but they split it into two groups with a ranger guiding each group. They managed the groups very well and everyone could hear easily.
