You learn so much about the importance of Uluru to the local Anangu people, about their bush foods, law, beliefs, stories. Our guide Steve, non-indigenous but taught by respected elders, was brilliant. So engaging. This is a must on your visit to... More

Winding its way from the main car park at the base of the rock this walk enables the viewer to see many aspects of the Rock. It allows the viewer to get very close to the Rock & gives you ample opportunity to get incredible photos. Informative signage is available at a number of locations along the trail for viewers...

Considering some of the paid trips available, I think I learned more on this free activity! Our guide, Adam was passionate about his heritage and job and the importance of preservation and cultural respect came across in his tour.

We had a wonderful Aboriginal guide, Peter, who in a very powerful way introduced us to the Aboriginal understanding and experience of inner Australia - I felt very appreciative of his open hearted sharing with us - this is a walk not to be missed!

Reece(Rhys) was our very informative guide told us great stories there were 51 in the group mostly Europeans/Americans& Australians the Japanese/Asians were walking up the rock as it's still included in their experience package!!! We due to more education are aware of how sensitive that is to the native landowners.

If you have any level of fitness at all, don't just do the short Mala walk. Do the whole 10.5km base walk and take the morning to do it. This is one of the great walks of the world. It's flat, a good quality path, and you get to closely look at the dozens of facets that this incredible rock... More

The walk allows visitors to take a close look at Uluru and is suitable for all ages. Visitors can study the special landform features and paintings on the rock by the aborigines in close distance. A whole morning or afternoon is recommended for the walk to see everything in detail. Visitors should watch out for the signs that photo-taking is... More

Our guide's name was Adam who is half aboriginal and gave a very impactful tour of Uluru. It was interactive as he taught us some new words and really helped put the lives of the aboriginal people in perspective. The rock itself is beautiful and this tour allows you to learn all the history and why things are the way... More
