It’s one thing to simply gaze up at the magical sandstone monolith that is Uluru but to really get intimate with this sacred Aboriginal site, it’s necessary to spend some time walking around it.
The rock’s shapes and textures hold knowledge and stories that have been passed down through generations of the Anangu people and are still relevant today.
If you don't want to walk the full 10km loop around Uluru try the 4km Lungkata Walk which showcases many of Uluru's geological highlights.
You can also take a ranger guided walk around Uluru and learn about traditional Anangu culture, rock art and how the park is managed.
And not far away is the Valley of the Winds Walk offering walkers a 7.4km/3-4hr circuit track featuring unique views of Kata Tjuṯa, a group of large, domed rock formations.
