We’ve always had great respect for the heritage and traditions of Australia’s Indigenous people.

Back in 1998 we were the first tour company to advise our travellers against climbing Uluru on account of its sacred significance to numerous Indigenous cultures. The close working partnerships we’ve established with Indigenous communities continue to inform our understanding of the land, as well as inspire in our travellers an appreciation for one of the world’s oldest living cultures.

Uluru Aboriginal Tours

All of our Original tours to Uluru (Ayers Rock) include a ‘Mala Walk’ in the company of the Rock’s traditional owners, the Anangu people. An initiative of Uluru Aboriginal Tours – a company fully owned and operated by the Mutitjulu community – this experience explains the stories connecting the region to its people and provides a valuable source of income for the community.
