Uluru and Kata Tjuta Walks

Walk through the natural beauty of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. See the expansive rock face of Uluru rise up to 348 metres above the red desert sand and hike through the stunning landscape of Kata Tjuta.

Uluru and Kata Tjuta Walks

Walking through Uluru-Kata Tjuta National park will reveal a land rich in Indigenous culture. Along the way, witness stunning landscapes, spectacular geological formations, rare plants and animals, and exceptional natural beauty.

Visit the Cultural Centre first to learn about the Anangu culture and the significance of the walks around the Park. Begin your walks with a deeper understanding as you follow the footsteps of the ancestral beings that shaped the landscape. See Park opening hours and entry fees.

Drink water, stay cool and walk safely. In hot weather, walk only in the cooler morning hours before 11am. As with all areas of the Park, stay on the marked tracks only. Download visitor guides and maps.
