Very convenient location immediately as you approach Uluru, beginning at the parking lot. The signage provides ample information for a self-guided tour if you want a very casual and enjoyable walk. There are tour options for sunrise and daytime as well. Very flat without obstacles,...More

This was part of our Rock Tour package. Our guide, Damo, taught us to respect the land and culture. What a magnificent place and awe inspiring. Every Australian should visit this sacred place.

The Park Warden offers this walk for free. Starts at 8.30am in the morning. About 1hr very easy walk around the rock. Plenty of interesting information. You should join this walk before doing any other walk.

When we went, there were a lot of people on the walk but they split it into two groups with a ranger guiding each group. They managed the groups very well and everyone could hear easily.

We took the 10am walk. It took 1 to 1 and a half hours and I highly recommend it.
