Uluru and Kakadu ready to welcome visitors again

Two of Australia’s most iconic destinations are set to reopen this week in the NT, with the Kakadu and Uluru‐Kata Tjuta National Parks to reopen from June 19.

“At Uluru‐Kata Tjuta National Park, walking tracks and sunrise and sunset viewing areas will be open,” National Parks director Dr James Findlay said.

“Visitors can take a walk to Mutitjulu Waterhole, hike around the base of Uluru or explore Kata Tjuta’s breathtaking views.

“The Cultural Centre and associated businesses will remain closed during this first stage of reopening, as will organised group activities and tours.

“We ask visitors to continue maintaining social distancing. We’ll be conducting additional cleaning of high contact areas and extra hand wash stations will be set up at key high‐contact locations throughout the parks. Some paths or areas may be one‐directional or have other health and safety restrictions related to COVID‐19, so we request visitors please observe arrows and signs.

“In order to keep flattening the COVID‐19 curve, all tour operators will be required to carry their COVID‐19 plan when with visitors.”
