#4 of 6 in Trails in Red Centre
Enjoy the scenic vista dominated by the imposing rock on Uluru Hiking Path. Lined with mulga trees and shrubs, the self-guided path will take you from the Cultural Centre to Uluru's base. After rainfall, you can admire the fragrant wildflowers that dot the reddish trail. Being relatively flat and wheelchair accessible, the 4 km (2.4 mi) hike won't take you too much effort to complete. Don't forget to bring plenty of water and sunscreen, especially on a hot day.

  • It's definitely worth doing all of these walks to understand more about Uluru. The scenery is beautiful and totally worth it.  more »
  • This walk takes about 5 hours, so have comfortable shoes, a hat, drinks and snacks on hand. Be sure to make the little side detours or you will miss the natural water features.  more »
  • This is not a "bad" walk from the Cultural Center to the Mala car park, but it is much less informative than starting at the car park and walking part of the base trail.  more »

  • 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.
  • Where is the entrance to Koala Walla Land? I want to meet the High Dingy Doo.
  • Fantastic
  • Overwhelmed by the umbrella in the other end say it is just a rock and is next to the rock, not on the vertical scale in

  • Can be integrated with nature. Will be noticed by their smallness.
