Mala Walk

This is where the Mala (rufous hare-wallaby) people camped when they arrived at Uluru in the beginning. There are examples of Anangu rock art along this walk and you can experience the sheer vertical walls and profound peacefulness of Kantju Gorge. A great sunset location in winter.

Mutitjulu Waterhole

Take the Lungkata Track to Mutitjulu Waterhole, home of Wanampi, an ancestral water snake. In the special times of rain, experience the magical waterfalls.

Uluru Circuit

Escape the crowds and take a meandering journey through acacia woodlands and grassed clay pans. Discover the diverse plants, animals and geological features of the park. From Kuniya Piti you can follow the snake-like grooves along the base of the rock where Kuniya journeyed to Mutitjulu Waterhole. Encounter bloodwoods, native grasses and waterways. The Base Walk is the best way to fully appreciate the natural and cultural beauty of Uluru.

Uluru Summit

THIS WALK IS NOW CLOSED.

Iconic, surreal, majestic, imposing, striking, spiritual, magical. Everyone's impression is different, which might be one reason why no description is included in any Uluru promotional material of this wonderful sandstone monolith.

Valley Of the Winds

Kata Tjuta is Pitjantjatjara, meaning ‘many heads’ consisting of 36 stunning domed rocks and is an Anangu men’s site and sacred under Tjukurpa (traditional law),
Take your time and soak in this very tranquil environment with absolutely spectacular scenery. The views are breathtakingly surreal and worth the effort, as the track takes you through valleys, along creek bed and far away from everyone and everything.
And when they say 'valley of the winds', there are lots of valleys and it can be very windy!

Walpa Gorge

Walpa, meaning 'windy' Gorge is a desert refuge for plants and animals. The rocky track gently rises to an ephemeral stream, passing rare plants and reaching a grove of spearwood. Walk within the sheer walls closing in on you from both sides and experience the vast landscape.
