We walked the base of Uluru which is 10.6KM. Although long there is so much to see and experience. Includes glades, sensitive sights to Aboriginal, waterholes and of course Uluru itself. You will find rest areas where you can get shade, emergency calling and water tanks for drinking. This walk has everything, but remember to take snacks, water and sun... More

We enjoyed a great walk around the base of the rock with SeeI It tours. It took around and hour and we learnt an enormous amount about the people who used to live in and around it, and the legends and stories that explain some of the strange rock formations on Uluru. The caves where the different elements of their... More

My wife & I & about 25 others took this walk with ranger Steve. I must admit I thought it would be a bit cheesy, I was very wrong. The enthusiasm & passion Ranger Steve had for the aboriginal culture & traditions was very genuine & it made you appreciate something of true value that is missing in this modern... More

Made a point of attending the 10am guided walk. Reece was our guide and really educated me on the history of Uluru and the local owners. It lasted 2 hours and it was done without becoming boring. I do not wish to say too much about what is taught as it will lessen your experience. Just go and find out.... More

The FREE GUIDED Mala Walk, at 10am daily, is not to be missed on your visit to Uluru. 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.
