The mala walk follows the north-west side of Uluru. There are many fine examples of Anangu rock art along this walk, and you can experience the sheer vertical walls and profound peacefulness of Kantju Gorge. 2 km return | 1.5 hrs | wheelchair access

We did the free guided Mala walk at 8am. The tour guide was interesting and informative. Really enjoyed seeing Uluru up close and the different caves - boys cave, mens cave, old mens cave, womens cave etc... and learning about them. Took about 2 hours...More
We went walking around the base of Uluru beginning before sunrise, and it was fabulous. This part of the walk has some caves with aboriginal art, which was so interesting. We had a talk by an Aborigine too, which was so interesting and educational. Don't...More
Mala Walk is full of Aboriginal history and arts. There are a few caves or places where you get to see ancient drawings (Aboriginal symbols) on the wall. I went there in the early morning to avoid the heat (forecasted at 42'C that day). Anyway,...More
The Mala walk begins at 8:am from the Make carpark. (base of the climb)
On arriving to the carpark you drive along the road till you turn left at a bend,then the rock is directly in front of you. What a sight!!

The Mala Walk has nice interpretive signs about indigenous beliefs, as well as the flora and fauna. The cave paintings are fascinating. Walking with the trail will take you 30 minutes. With the ranger it’s 2 hours, then the sun gets really hot, and it’s...More
We walked around Uluru at sunrise at 6am. No one around then and we followed the path all the 10.5 km around. We finished at 9am before it was too hot. Great views of the rock, colours changing all the time
You can do the Mala walk on your own but we found the 8:00am walk with the Ranger to be a great choice. She was very informative & knowledgeable and very dead set against doing the climb !! We saw things that once explained made...More
We did go after the sunrise to the parking lot. It was crowded with people going up Uluru but on the walk we were almost alone. Only when coming back some smaller group did arrive.
The walk is very easy to do. Along the path...More
While on a Tauck tour we went to Uluru. I will admit I was not thrilled at the idea at first. We had the GREAT fortune to have Leroy for our guide. His enthusiasm, personality and vast knowledge about Anagu people made it one of...More

Hi, we hired a car that way we weren’t restricted, apart from the cost of the rental you have to buy a park pass which is $25.00 each & is good for 3 days. We drove out to Uluru for the free ranger guided tour starts at 08:00 at Mala Walk car park but best check times. We also drive ourselves out to Kata Tjuta (The Olga’s) for the sunrise. There are lots of tours you can do out there & book at the Visitors centre in town if you don’t want to hire a car. We stayed at the Outback Pioneer Hotel was nice enough about 3 star (in between Sails which is 5 star & the camp ground) it has a pool & a couple of places to eat the room was clean so all good. The resort/compound which all the accomodation places are located in including the town centre has a free bus that regularly goes around if you don’t have a car.
Can recommend doing the Field of Light tour dawn or dusk we ended up on the dawn one as the evening one kept getting cancelled because of storms.
Have a great trip would go back anyway.
