Starting from Mala Car Park on Uluru Road, Petermann, this walk takes you on a circuit around the sandstone monolith Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock), visiting multiple rock caves, ancient paintings and a waterhole along the way. This iconic walk lets you view the magnificent 500.000 year old rock formation from every angle whilst informing you about the rich history of the area. A sacred land to the Aboriginal Anangu People, this area holds great cultural importance. You can join guided tours and listen to some historic stories or read the informational signposts and learn about it yourself. The track is wheelchair friendly under dry conditions but has some steep sections as well. Bring plenty of water and a fly net to have a better experience. Come early in the morning and finish the walk before midday to avoid the extreme heat. Let us begin by acknowledging the Anangu people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Walk

Starting from the car park at the end of Valley of the Winds Access Road, Petermann, this walk explores the Valley of the Winds and the Kata Tjuta, visiting Karu and Karingana lookouts along the way. You’ll have a chance to view the exceptional ancient rock formation from all sorts of angles as you make your way along the rocky trail. The name ‘Kata Tjuta’ actually means ‘many heads’ in Pitjantjatjara/Yankunytjatjara language. Keep an eye on the domes, they literally change colour according to the sun’s angle. Regardless of the colour, you’ll feel like you’re on an intergalactic mission due the redness and dryness of the area. On the contrary, there are heaps of birds in the area that give you something nice to listen to. The Karingana Lookout offers truly amazing views of the Kata Tjuta and the surrounding area, so try to make it there even if you’re going to cut the hike short. Keep in mind that the loop after the Karu Lookout is only accessible below 36 degrees Celsius. Come early to avoid the crowds and possibly getting baked. Bring a hat, sunscreen and an insect repellent. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
