Full description
See all Uluru has to offer by walking the base of Uluru. If you speak French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian or Mandarin, there are optional audio-guides available for you. Your guide will pick you up from your accommodation approximately one hour before sunrise in a comfortable vehicle fitting a maximum of 11 participants. Your journey then begins into Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, as you head towards the base of Uluru to start your walk you’ll see the impressive monolith rising in the dawn light marking its overwhelming presence in the area. Your professional guide has been trained in all there is to know about Uluru: the flora, fauna, geology, Aboriginal culture, and history and can’t wait to share it with you making Uluru come to life as you walk around it. You’ll start walking before sunrise to the perfect location to view the spectacular event and marvel as the whole landscape changes under the first rays of light. As you continue on the trail, visit waterholes, rock art sites, and learn the cultural significance of Uluru to the Anangu (local Aboriginal) people. Take time out along the way to enjoy your outback picnic breakfast as you enjoy the surrounding environment and all Uluru has to offer. As you make your way around the base your guide will tell you stories associated with prominent Tjukurpa (creation stories), from the story of Tjukurpa of Liru and Kuniya while you are walking along the Kuniya walk leading to the beautiful Mutitjulu Waterhole, to the story of the Mala people which you will hear while walking along the Mala Walk to Kantju Gorge. Once you’ve returned to your starting destination your guide will take you back to your Ayers Rock accommodation.

Great tour. Small group. With a guide you get more of an understanding of Uluru and its stories. Walk was 12.8 klm. Guide will let you know where you can and can't take photo's so please be respectful. We each received an over the shoulder bag with breakfast treats, hot and cold water. Check the time of the year as to whether you need to wear fly net over your head/face (you can get from Kmart, Bunnings etc). We were walking into the sunrise which was beautiful. Would recommend doing this tour over hop-on-hop-off bus and own walk. The walk is flat and the pace was fine.

This is definitely an experience worth doing while in Uluru! The walk is easy as the terrain is flat, and the guide shared interesting stories and facts about the history and culture along the way. The only thing to note is that you can’t take photos of the rock at sunrise as you are at one of the sacred sites, but that didn’t take away from the experience at all!

Our guide Dan was so informative. We loved walking around the whole base learning the stories of Uluru and what each marking on the Rock meant. I'd really recommend this tour, instead of blindly walking around you gain great insight into the significance of this beautiful place and it's people.
