Stage Three re-opening from Monday 14 December 2020
We are pleased to advise that we will be moving to Stage Three of the re-opening of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park on Monday 14 December 2020.
This third stage is part of the four stage plan for opening the park following its closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The park has been operating safely in Stage Two since the 17 July 2020 and the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Board has endorsed the move to Stage Three.
Some restrictions will remain in place and COVID-19 health and safety practices remain.

- Following a number of significant infrastructure upgrades, the Cultural Centre will be partially re-opening with businesses operating under approved COVID safe plans, and with further works to continue in to 2021

All visitors to the Cultural Centre will be required to register and check in with the NT Government ‘Territory Check-in App’ or record their details manually upon arrival.
The safety and well being of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park’s guests, local communities and staff are our utmost priority, and we are committed to maintaining COVID-safe health and safety protocols.
Staff are continuing to conduct additional cleaning in key contact areas and extra hand wash stations have been made available for visitors’ convenience.
We will be using signage to remind visitors to maintain social distancing. Some paths or areas may be one-directional and markers will be placed in some areas to provide guests with guidance to ensure 1.5 metre distancing rules are observed.
We are looking forward to opening more areas and activities and welcoming more visitors back to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
