Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Learn about the park’s geology, natural environment and cultural heritage from the people that live here.

This free ranger guided excursion follows the Mala walk along the base of Uluru.

Our park rangers will stop at various sites to talk about the meaning of rock art, demonstrate the tools traditionally used by Anangu and tell you the Tjukurpa (creation stories) of many rock formations.

The rangers will also explain how Uluru and Kata Tjuta formed and talk about the desert environment and the animals and plants that live here.

The Mala walk ends at Kantju Gorge – a dramatic, near-vertical wall that becomes a raging waterfall when it rains.

If you miss the ranger-guided walk, you can take a self-guided tour by following the information signs along the Mala walk.

This is an easy 2 km return walk and is wheelchair accessible.

Things to bring:

  • A hat, sunscreen and insect repellent.
  • Comfortable walking shoes.
  • Plenty of drinking water.
  • Your camera.
