If you don't have time or don't want to walk the entire base of Uluru, you should definitely do the Mala walk. You get to see a little bit of everything on this walk (a watering hole, caves, cave paintings) and it's not super long, and also mostly shaded. There's a free guided walk at 8am, which we started out... More

Good short flat walk taking in a number of interesting sites. Suitable for small children. Would also be good for people still acclimatising to the heat.

We did the Mala Walk after climbing Uluru a few weeks ago, good day of exercise and you really get a sense of how ginormous the rock is. We understand the cultural significance of the rock and its importance to the aboriginals or Australia but if everyone doesn’t want people to climb it then close it. They have a strange... More

Visiting Uluru is an amazing experience. Taking part in the guided morning walk is a really helpful introduction to the stories and culture of the area. For those unfamiliar with the culture this is also an good introduction to why significant cultural areas should be respected and why it is also disrespectful to climb the rock. Those who do climb...

Uluru is huge and when you walk the base you see it up close and personal. We definitely got a different perspective when walking the base, it's truly amazing! Our young guide was very informative, we learned things about the aborigines and their stories. The walk takes about 3.5 hours, so good comfortable shoes and a full water bottle are... More

Doing this walk was a great way of understanding some of the culture, history and significance of Uluru....and it's free! Highly recommend it! A leisurely walk on flat ground makes it suitable for all ages and physical abilities. The talk will be slightly different depending on whether your guide is male or female as this distinction is an important part... More

We walked the base of Uluru which is 10.6KM. Although long there is so much to see and experience. Includes glades, sensitive sights to Aboriginal, waterholes and of course Uluru itself. You will find rest areas where you can get shade, emergency calling and water tanks for drinking. This walk has everything, but remember to take snacks, water and sun... More

We enjoyed a great walk around the base of the rock with SeeI It tours. It took around and hour and we learnt an enormous amount about the people who used to live in and around it, and the legends and stories that explain some of the strange rock formations on Uluru. The caves where the different elements of their... More
