The Cultural Centre is located a couple of km from Uluru and houses a number of exhibitions and shops in a series of buildings. The information is in both fixed and video form and high quality. An excellent place to learn more about Uluru.

Excellent displays and information about the Anangu people and their culture and stories. Make sure you allow plenty of time to read, watch the audio visuals and simply be immersed in this fascinating history of the original people of this sacred land.

We were taken to the Cultural Centre rather as an afterthought by our guide having completed the Uluru Base Walk. I thought it was well worth a visit in its own right and I was sorry we were unable to stay longer. Very good for gifts to take home.

This is a pretty average tourist purchase facility. There is a ranger station where you can ask questions, provided that the people before you are not in a philosophical discussion with the Ranger.

The art outlet is an expensive place to browse but the souvenir shop still has some interesting goods for sale. The exhibits are interesting and tell of the history of the area.

I recommend this to be the first stop before doing anything after entering the park - it has all the information you need - maps, a good aboriginal museum (note, no pictures allowed), cafe, shop (great for fly nets - a must in the heat), picnic spot and bathrooms.
