No visit to the World Heritage listed Uluru & Kata Tjuta National Park is complete without an Uluru guided walking tour around its base. Imagine the magnitude of this monolith, if an Uluru guided base walking tour stretches for 10.5kms. A giant red rock monolith rising over 348 metres and the sacred place of indigenous Australians – Uluru, also enjoys the privilege of being World Heritage listed.
