Overall rating

4.7 / 5

The walk was very rocky - and uphill so Moderate as described. A Very interesting pattern of vegetation with actual small trees at the end and a small waterhole. Recent rains meant lots of lovely flowers around and flocks of tiny birds. We were allowed to walk by ourselves at our own pace , the driver did not talk continuously, and he let us stop by the viewing platform, all of which was excellent. This walk, coupled with the separate extended 36min helicopter ride over the Olga's where we could see where we walked, was awesome, and I appreciated the many features of the Olga's probably more than Uluru itself.

Great tour guide, comfortable coach, beautiful scenery, enjoyed everything but would have liked a little more time at Walpa Gorge as only approx. 40 mins was actually spent at the gorge the rest was travelling there and back.

Awesome we loved it -everyone should have Uluru on their bucket list-took Covid to get us there we loved it-hassle free holiday I am so glad we both had a great time
