Walking around Uluru (Ayers Rock)

After watching the sun rise we began a walk part way around the Rock. The circumference is 9.4kms (5.8mi). There are quite a few walks around the base. You can do them all at once or break them up into each walk. We did the Kuniya and Lungkata Walks. Each of the six walks around the base have their own significance.

The Kuniya Walk focuses on the Kuniya Tjukurpa as well as the place of waterholes in Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park. In addition, information is provided on the pivotal role of the Mutitjulu waterhole in establishing tourism at the Park and its focal point in early interactions between Europeans and traditional owners at Uluru.

The Lungkata Walk focuses on the non-snake reptiles of Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park as well as fire management on the Park. By the time we started this walk the sun came out providing the gorgeous blue sky as the backdrop.
