Anangu suggest you make the Tjukurpa Tunnel at the Cultural Centre your very first experience of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
“Nganana malikitja Tjutaku mukuringanyi nganampa ngura nintiringkunytjaku munu Anangu kulintjaku.”
“We want all our visitors to learn about our place and to listen to us Anangu.”
— Tony Tjamiwa
