Palya! Welcome! You are now at the entry station and about to start your journey through Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park.
We hope these audio tours help you make the most of your trip. We'll suggest where you should go, what to look out for - and we hope you'll enjoy learning more about the Aboriginal traditional owners of this land.
Palya is used today as 'Hello' or 'Welcome' in Pitjantjatjara. This is the language of Anangu, the traditional owners of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. It has been spoken throughout the desert regions for thousands of years. We'll give you some more Pitjantjatjara words as you travel along.
Uluru is world-famous for its stunning sunrises and sunsets - but there's so much you can experience here.
We have many walks to suit all fitness levels. Our walks let you explore the plants and animals of our World-Heritage environment and learn a bit about our Anangu living culture -rock art, bush foods, medicines and tools. But try also to book a tour with a traditional owner and learn to see the landscape through Anangu eyes.
Start your trip at the Cultural Centre and our friendly staff will tell you about all the experiences Uluru has to offer. Pick up your free visitor guide here and find out more about Uluru and Anangu through our many interesting displays.
Before you head off to the Cultural Centre and start your Uluru journey, I'd just like to remind you that your park pass is valid for three days - so please hang on to it if you plan to visit the park more than once!
The park use fee you pay helps us look after this Australian icon, its surrounding environment and helps Anangu communities. Thank you so much for supporting our park and Anangu - welcome again!
