Your precious Uluru-Kata Tjuta park use ticket
When you enter Uluru-Kata Tjuta, you'll be purchasing a park entry ticket. Much like a passport, you'll need to keep this ticket with you and close at hand. There are supposedly "snap inspections" by park rangers, although we didn't face any.
What you WILL need is your ticket anytime you go into or out of the park area...and you do this a lot as you travel (for example) between Uluru, your campsite, the Olgas, the Valley of the Winds, etc. You don't want to get caught outside without your ticket, as it may cost you another $25 Aussie dollars to get back in.
Uluru. The Anangu wish you'd look and NOT climb
One of the highlights for many visitors to Uluru or Ayers Rock is to actually climb the rock. And while the view is reportedly stunning, and the sense of accomplishment huge, do remember that this park and this land is sacred to the Anangu. They clearly feel that your climbing the rock is harmful and disrespectful to them and their culture. In every document produced, every service spot announcement, they literally BEG you NOT to climb Uluru.
Considering that I didn't want to be sore for the next three days, passing on the climb was made even easier knowing that it was the right thing to do for our hosts. :)
A well-hydrated Sara, out on the trail
Exploring and enjoying Uluru-Kata Tjuta is an experience of a lifetime. But, never lose site of your surroundings and its dangers. The following are from the official Uluru-Kata Tjuta Visitors Guide:
(1) Stay on marked trails.
(2) Always walk or climb with one other person
(3) Carry and drink one liter of water for every hour you walk or climb in hot weather
(4) Wear sturdy boots, a hat with a secure strap, a long sleeved shirt and max protection suncreen.
(5) In the hottest weather, restrict climbing and walking activity to cooler parts of the day
(6) DO NOT TRY TO RETRIEVE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN DROPPED OR THAT HAVE BLOWN AWAY ON THE TRAIL, ESPECIALLY IF CLIMBING ULURU.
If you feel ill or have been injured, stay where you are and have someone contact a park ranger. Rangers can be contacted at any time by using emergency alarms available at
(1) Mala walk carpark, base of Uluru
(2) Kuniya Piti water tank at eastern end of Uluru
(3) Kata Tjuta dune viewing, along Kata Tjuta road
(4) Walpa gorge carpark at Kata Tjuta
