Itinerary



On arrival in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park you’ll be welcomed by your Aboriginal Guide and interpreter. When your guide greets you, you in return can say ‘palya’ (rhymes with cull-ya). Your guide is Anangu (pronounced arn-ung-oo) and is part of the Mutitjulu community, the traditional owners of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara are the languages of the Anangu. Your guide will speak to you in Pitjantjatjara during the tour and your interpreter will translate into English.

On the Mala Walk you’ll enter the caves where the Mala (rufous hare-wallaby) people camped when they first arrived at Uluru, and see the kitchen cave where they prepared their meals. The Mala people are the Anangu’s ancestors, and their story is one of the most important of the Tjukurpa (the foundation of Anangu culture). You’ll see fine examples of rock art before arriving at Kantju gorge, a place of profound peacefulness surrounded by sheer vertical walls. On a drive around Uluru, your guide will point out important Aboriginal landmarks. Finally, join Maruku’s local Anangu artists for a fun introduction to the unique desert art form, dot painting. Learn about the symbols and painting styles used to create beautiful works of art. You’ll be inspired to create your own painting, which you’ll take home as a memento of your experience.
