Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Take the time to soak up the natural beauty and rich culture of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

From mind-blowing rock formations to endless vistas, from soaring domes to unbelievable crevices and rock art paintings, our walking tracks are the ideal way to discover the hidden features of the park.

Most of the tracks are wheelchair accessible and range from easy to moderate.

Walking and culture

For the park’s Anangu traditional owners, Uluru and Kata Tjuta tell important stories from the beginning of time.

According to Tjukurpa (creation stories) the park’s unique geological formations were created by ancestral beings that have travelled through the landscape since time immemorial.

Uluru and Kata Tjuta hold great spiritual significance as they are places where many creation stories converge.

When you look at Anangu depictions of Uluru, you can clearly see it as a meeting place at the very centre, with many pathways and tracks leading to and from it. Each path tells an important story that teaches a vital lesson.

Walks around the base of Uluru follow the tracks of the ancestral beings. The rock’s shapes and textures hold knowledge and stories that have been passed down through generations of Anangu and are still relevant today.

The 36 steep-sided domes of Kata Tjuta lie 50 kilometres by road from Uluru. Kata Tjuta is a Pitjantjatjara word meaning ‘many heads’. This is an Anangu men’s site and is sacred under Tjukurpa. Everyone is encouraged to explore this otherworldly site by foot but – as with all areas of the park – we ask you to stay on the marked tracks.

While in Uluru and Kata Tjuta, take the time to contemplate the ancient landscape, feel the echoes of time, breathe in the tranquillity and listen to the soothing sounds of the desert.
