Uluru is a sacred site for the local Anangu Aboriginal community and they prefer visitors do not climb it. This tour takes you to the base of the massive monolith which is home to an abundance of springs, waterholes, rock caves, and ancient paintings, and each has a legend attached to it.
You will visit some of the main sites like Kuniya Piti, Kantju Gorge, Lungkata and Mutitjulu Waterhole. Upon completion of the Uluru Base tour, you will receive a certificate of achievement.
As part of the tour, take the Mala and Lungkata Walk, one of the most important habitation areas for the local Aboriginal people over thousands of years.
The tour is led by an English speaking guide who will tell you stories and local legends, and the significance of the places visited.

First walk from Kuniya Piti, an Uluru sacred site and hear the Tjukurpa (Anangu – the local Aboriginal people - beliefs and law) story of the Mala Men. Next is the Mala Walk, one of the most important habitation areas for the local Aboriginal people over thousands of years.
The Mala walk includes a visit into Kantju Gorge, where after rainfall, water can cascade over the side of Uluru and plunge some 90 metres.
After a short rest break, continue on along the Lungkata Walk where your guide will tell you the Tjukurpa story of the cheeky Blue Tongue Lizard!
Visit the Mutitjulu Waterhole, an unusually shaped water-filled hole at the base of Uluru. Your guide will indicate the natural features of the landscape, the Aboriginal rock paintings and narrate more traditional stories relating to this significant location. The waterhole was once an important water source for the Anangu people.
Return to Kuniya Piti after the tour, where you will board your coach back into town and receive a certificate of your achievement!
