The Big Uluru Trek

9am Tuesday 23rd - 27th August 2016

At the Uluru Kata Tjuta region

Aboriginal Consultation & Collaboration

Big Run Events has been working on plans for this Trek for a number of years, and over that time has had extensive meetings and communications with a range of groups including the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park Board including Traditional Owners, the Central Land Council who represent the interests and assist the traditional owners of lands outside the national park upon which the event is held, and many of the Traditional Owners themselves.

In addition to these extensive meetings,  we have held recee trips in the proposed Trek area in conjunction with the CLC and Traditional Owners, and had campsite locations approved and cleared by the Traditional owners.

The Big Uluru Trek would like to acknowledge and thank the Nguritja people, the traditional owners of the land upon which this trek is held, for giving their permission for this trek to take place on their land.

What has become very apparent to us during this time is the deep understanding, pride and attachment to country of the Traditional Owners, as well as the willingness to share their stories and knowledge of country with outsiders.

We are indeed fortunate to be granted special access permits for this Trek, and to have traditional owners accompany the Trek, and share their knowledge and stories.

We are also proud that the Trek will be able to employ local Anagnu people to support the Trek, and also provide a range of other benefits to the Traditional owners through the conduct of the Trek.
We know that those participating in this Trek will go away with an increased knowledge of this country from the Traditional Owners and a deeper connection to the traditional owners of this ancient land.
