  • It is a road which leads from the culture center to the climbing entrance of Uluru. It is a road of about two kilometers, but only a set of parents and children were walking. Moreover, it was cycling. It's not a long distance, and there's a unique view of this road. Please walk together with the base walk to enjoy Uluru from all angles as long as it is possible to see it because it came even if it is not a special remarkable scenery.

  • This walk goes to the cultural centre, so is not around the base of the rock like some others. It gives you different views of Ulura though, so it's still nice.  more »
  • Beautiful place to take in nature....
  • Easier climb than I thought. Do this in the early morning before it gets too hot. It takes about 2.5h - 4h depending how long you stay on the peak. It was safer to climb than to descend as the rock surface can get slippery on downhill slope. As the climb will be prohibited, give it a try before that.
