1. Uluru: Guided Trek of Uluru's Base in a Small Group

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.

Telling of the dreamtime stories gives you a deeper understanding to how sacred this place is for the traditional owners and why you feel a strong inner energy when around Uluru.

Pick up was on time. Light breakfast was well planned and quite sufficient for the walk. It’s a long way but we’ll paced with restrooms available at two pints along the way

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Ryan shared his excellent knowledge of the area and Aboriginal culture and answered all questions in detail. He was a fabulous tour guide.

Flat walk easy to manage and a wonderful cultural experience from the guides.

Toilet is pit privy. Be prepared. It is chilly in June, get rugged up.
