Here for breakfast after Uluru sunrise and The Olgas visit. Café coped very well with our party and there was plenty of seating area. We had time to look around the centre which was informative and educational. Plenty of aboriginal paintings, variety of boomerangs and other Australian craftwork.

... And it might just help to persuade some when it comes to the all important question of whether to "climb the rock" or not. Very informative, culturally sensitive, and a great welcome to the park. Should be mandatory for all visitors to the area.

We think so too! A visit to the Cultural Centre introduces Anangu, the traditional owners of Uluru, and their culture – and sets the scene for a guided tour or cultural workshop.

We stopped here as part of a tour, and there were interesting exhibits that helped provide perspectives on the culture and beliefs of the local indigenous people.

One area that can be improved substantially is the small theater that shows a film. We knew when we arrived that we had limited time to see the center, and we had no way to determine whether we could watch the film within that period, and still see other parts of the center, or not, because there is no sign indicating the length of the film. (We saw part of it and it was good.) So one improvement would be a sign to provide this information. A second major issue was that it was very hard to hear the film. The viewing area is open at the front ends and people walking by, talking in normal voice levels (not excessive) drowned out the audio part of the film. Third, the seating is hard and uncomfortable and absolutely not friendly to the elderly or people who have mobility issues.

There's a lot here for anyone who has the time and interest to look at it and learn. I've been to other places where local indigenous people walk around with visitors to tell them the highlights in limited periods of time. That would be an improvement here.

The information about the local people and traditional caretakers of Uluru was very good. Very well organised and a great introduction to Uluru.

It tells you a lot about the aboriginal myths and legends but it would be more interesting to actually find out about the history of the people rather than stories. Overall it's worth a five minute visit but don't expect too much.

The Cultural Centre also has information on the early days out at Uluru, the handback of the park to Anangu in 1985 and the ways we’ve been working together to manage the land. The centre is being upgraded with new interpretive panels, new displays and new park notes so they’ll be plenty of new things to discover. Regards, Tanya, Parks Australia
