This walk gave me a good idea of just how big Uluru is. 10,6km is a long way to go to circle a big rock. As I walked around I saw how often the face of the rock changes. There are many sacred sites along the way and for most of them there are pieces of information about the reason... More

We were picked up at 5am by Camille, our guide for the day. Our group had 9 in total and each of us were given our breakfast bag containing plenty of food for our 5hr tour. After a 20min drive we reached 'the rock' and Camille explained the details of our walk. There were plenty of photo opportunities and the... More

AAT Kings offer some amazing tours and do a perfect job at helping you see everything about Ayers Rock (Uluru). The sunrise base walk tour of 11.6km was a great way to start! #smilekings

We Stayed at the Emu Apartments at Ayres Rock and they were really comfortable and clean. Not much to do around here, but still an amazing place to visit. anyone travelling to Oz should find the time to visit. We did the sunrise tour and we were not disappointed, it was well organised and flexible, which was helpful when you... More

We visited the rock at sunset, an early start but definately worth seeing the rock come to light as the sun rises

This rock, Uluru, has an unusual way of humbling you, its not that big comparatively however once Joanna tells you about the history and some of the stories there is so much more than size. If that is not enough then jump on a sunset tour with Anna and Brodie for another amazing and informative adventure around (or though) Kata... More

This is a nice hike...fairly easy walk...around Ayers Rock. If in the late spring or summer, be sure and bring your fly netting. If you forget, I can promise that your experience will not be as enjoyable.

We got to the base after doing the sunrise around 7am You can walk in 3.5 hours or pedal in around 2. Get there early to avoid the heat, flies and tourists.
