The Centre is located near Ayers Rock. The building is large and built from the locally made mud bricks. The Centre showcases the culture and history of the Anangu, who are the traditional owners of the land. There are exhibits and presentations throughout the day. They sell a Visitor’s Guide that is definitely worth the cost and provides good information on Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Parks. There is a café and souvenir shop here as well.

This is a good stop to introduce yourself to the culture of the area. A lot of reading on your self-guided tour, so may not be interactive enough for some children-or adults! Art work available for purchase and watch artisans creating their pieces. No photography allowed. Trading hours limited so may be closed late afternoon (4 pm ish)

You came all the way to Uluru and you off course want nice souvenirs. This place does not disappoint, a lot in stock. There are people with lots of knowledge and information to share about how best to experience Uluru but then again, someone should google all those beforehand making a trip to Red centre. There are other quite few attractions too like live aboriginal painting session, well equipped aboriginal item shop, a nice small cafe etc

I was with a tour bus group and the first to sit down in the dining roon.The manager of the cafe which is a very heavy set man was very rude. Using his customer service skills, he could of approached me in a friendly manner and ask me not to sit in the dining area because they were going to have a meeting in there, soon. Instead he comes stomping up to me. Yelled so loud that every customer (at least 20 people) and employees in the shop could hear. There was no need for that behaviour. I will not be not be helping to support him or return to the cafe.. I will not recommend this cafe to anyone and will advise friends not go there. Regardless of race, creed or religion, everyone should be treated nicely and with repect. I will also not be back to this part of australia. Thanks for ruining, what was going to be a great holuday

There is a cafe, museum, gallery, art store. There is a National Parks office with maps and advice etc. You will find toilets, seating, parking, and shade. You can book tours, buy art, buy souvenirs, hire a bike.

You will get friendly assistance should you need it.

The cultural center is a good place to start (and finish) a loop of Uluru base track.

The Cultural Center is part museum, part workshop, part gift store and part cafe. The museum potion is pretty straight forward. The workshop had a few local artisans working on their canvases. Definitely work a stop when visiting Uluru.

Before heading to to the Uluru Base Walk we stopped at the cultural centre. It is a lovely place which gives great insight on the significance of the national park and we even saw a cultural talk regarding the different bush foods and other insights on Indigenous Australians. There is a cafe, art gallery and souvenirs here also which were great to have a look at. You can not video or take any photos here.

Ayers Rock is a beautiful place to visit in Australia. Sunrise was spectacular. As of October 2019, you can no longer climb Ayers Rock. We rented bikes and rode around the rock just after sunrise before it got too hot. Definitely wear netting on your head to keep the little flying bugs off your face.

The scenery, the history and story telling, no flies and the weather was cooler all good.But our sunrise and Kata Jjuka tour not good as we were picked up late. The driver wrecked it "eddie". He was a total pain. I dreaded it every time he spoke, he did have a lot of knowledge, but the way he treated other staff and the amount of dribble he spoke out weighed the good. We were told to hurry because we were running late. He is detrimental to your company. On walk to lookout we were told to turn around at 9.05 and come back no matter where you were. He would also talk over the top of the other guides, so very rude. OK everybody. Everyone OK, everyone OK, OK everyone, he repeated this the whole time.

Kata Tjuta is a group of 36 enormous rocks 53 kilometers from Uluru (Ayers Rock). It has more cubic feet of rock and covers more hectares than Uluru but is less well known. It is well worth visiting. We took a Se-It tour to there. The young lady who was out guide was personable and knowledgeable but the rest of the trip was a waste of time & money. Took a van on the 51 kilometer trip from the hotel, stopped and took a short (20 min) walk up a steep rocky slope, took a couple of photos and returned to the bus. On the drive back to the hotel we stopped briefly at a viewpoint (Which required another steep climb) then returned to the hotel. I can not recommend this tour and, in fact, advise against it.
