Starting from Mala Car Park on Uluru Road, Petermann, this walk takes you on a circuit around the sandstone monolith Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock), visiting multiple rock caves, ancient paintings and a waterhole along the way. This iconic walk lets you view the magnificent 500.000 year old rock formation from every angle whilst informing you about the rich history of the area. A sacred land to the Aboriginal Anangu People, this area holds great cultural importance. You can join guided tours and listen to some historic stories or read the informational signposts and learn about it yourself. The track is wheelchair friendly under dry conditions but has some steep sections as well. Bring plenty of water and a fly net to have a better experience. Come early in the morning and finish the walk before midday to avoid the extreme heat. Let us begin by acknowledging the Anangu people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
