company: Anangu Tours Australia
country: Australia
product: aboriginal tours
distribution: Australia – Internet booking available

company: Anangu Tours is the tour company operated by the traditional Aboriginal (Anangu) owners of Uluru National Park, in Australia's Northern Territory. The Anangu have lived in Uluru for many thousands of years. They have developed a rich and vibrant culture that is derived from the ‘Tjukurpa’, the traditional law involving ecological, economic, and religious rules for living. On their tours they share their intricate understanding of the land, plants and animals with small groups. Traditional Aboriginal guides and an Aboriginal language interpreter guide all tours. Visitors are offered a very special insight into the real meaning and history of Uluru, and learn fascinating aspects of Aboriginal customs and lifestyle.

services: Anangu offers different tours…

  • Liru Walk: departing from the Cultural Centre, your Aboriginal guide takes you on a meander through bushland near the base of Uluru. The creation stories shown to you in the scars and features of Uluru are thousands of generations old! You will see how traditional tools, weapons and implements are made and used in daily life, learn how to make the oldest glue in the world and practice throwing a spear…


  • Kuniya walk: the guide will introduce you to the key creation stories of Uluru and you will visit caves where your guide's ancestors left paintings in time-worn ochre, see a variety of local bush foods, learn how the foods were prepared, and hear tales of desert survival…
Special experiences for conferences and groups, including traditional song and dance (Inma), are also available.

sustainability features: Anangu Tours has used its profits to help the community establish the first Aboriginal Secondary College. Moreover, the tours have strengthened cultural pride and kindled a renewed interest in traditional skills among local youth.

In 2004, the company was awarded the World Legacy Award: a special prize given to tourism businesses, organisations or attractions contributing to cultural heritage and diversity.
