Uluru Base Walk is a 11km, grade 3 circuit hike, located in the heart of the Northern Territory. The hike should take approximately 2-3hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

Standing 348m high, Uluru’s mass is like an iceberg, with most of its mass located beneath the earth. Explore this monolith by taking the Uluru Base Walk around its entire base. Enjoy various waterholes, sacred meeting areas and numerous rock art sites. Following rain you can also view native wild flowers along the desert plains.

You can take the entire Uluru base walk, or just concentrate on one or more of its sections, depending on how much time you have, your level of fitness and the weather.

Each section will look and feel completely different. Some areas are surprisingly green and lush, providing plenty of wildlife and bush tucker spotting opportunities, while other sections feel open and vast, with little shade.

The base walk will take you through acacia woodlands and grassed claypans. You will encounter bloodwoods, native grasses, and many waterways and waterholes.

Tips

  • Heat exhaustion and dehydration risk. In hot weather finish this walk by 11.00am
  • Some tracks close in the afternoon during the summer, due to the high risk of heat stroke.
  • It is recommended you start the base walk from the Mala carpark in the early morning, while it€™s cool. Facing the rock, start by going clockwise.
