What a beautiful thing to see... but completely over shadowed by an insane amount of flies. This hike was the most insufferable of any I have done...

easy but hot. Good close up views. We did a guided tour starting just before sunrise but there are signs and story boards that give same info. You need lots of water and only one toilet and water station on the loop.

We did the base walk with Segway’s and it was amazing and maybe cheating but worth it! Just forgot to turn off the app! Lol

Beautiful trail, you can see all the faces of Uluru. If you start early in the morning (around 8:30am), you don’t need a fly net.

Easy trail to be honest, the only difficult part was the head that started to build up after sunrise. Fascinating place, and Breathtaking!!

What a great walk. It was good to go around the base of the rock and have great views of all parts of it. Lots of flies and lots of people on segues and bikes. Certainly a walk worthwhile walk doing.

A bucket list hike

The walk around the base of this magnificent structure is incredible.

This is the second time I have climbed Uluru and the completed the base walk on the same day. This time instead of climbing to the top, taking a photo then walking down, I took an hour or so to sit up there and soak in the views which are nothing short of spectacular. The climb is not for the faint hearted and only about (in my opinion) 5-10% of starters finish at the top. The base walk with the off shoots is well worth the effort. This walk is very easy and worth taking your time to do. I find its a good wind down after climbing the rock.

You can't come to Uluru and not do this trail. It's marked at the Uluru Base Trail and closes in hot temperatures. Definitely recommend giving yourself at least 3 hours (even for the fit!) and finishing before 11am when the temperature increases.
