Uluru and Kata Tjuta, so many people visit these rock formations but how many people speak to Anangu locals or choose a cultural tour rather than the climb.

We met Valerie Brumby a Pitjantjatjara speaker and her Japanese interpreter on a cultural tour. A comprehensive explanation of a rock art site on Uluru preceded being shown the signs of action snake creation ancestors left before freezing to form enormous sections of the rock.
