Uluru Segway Tours is committed to working with our local community in order to maintain the environment, care for culture and support local business. Our commitment to this is more than skin deep, our daily operations reflect our values centred around the environment and community.
Did you know that if the average person traded in their car for a Segway they could save over a ton of CO2 emissions in just one year? So why drive around Uluru when you can Segway around it?
It’s true, Segway’s are an extremely energy efficient mode of transport. Running on batteries, Segway’s emit no greenhouse gasses during us. They only require power during their recharge time. We are based in the township of Yulara that uses solar to produce 15% of the town’s power, which further lowers our Segway’s already small carbon footprint.
We operate within the World Heritage listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park (UKTNP) and in doing so have a close working relationship with the national park. Uluru Segway Tours is actively involved in assisting with trail maintenance and weed control. Did you know that our team gets down and dirty with UKTNP rangers by assisting them with track maintenance, with minor repairs and the removal of the invasive Buffel Grass from parts of the base walk trail.
Caring for Culture
Uluru Segway Tours is committed to respecting local culture. When you take a tour with us our guides will share with you the culture of the Anangu, local Aboriginal people. All of our guides are accredited within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park allowing them to deliver cultural information in the most culturally sensitive way possible. In order to become accredited our guides must complete a specially tailored course designed by Charles Darwin University with direct input from Anangu and the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
Did you know that we are territory owned and operated? Tourism brings approximately 15 000 jobs to the NT and we want to keep it that way. We do this through buying local, employing local and investing local. Furthering this we strive to provide employment pathways for people living in nearby Aboriginal communities, like Mutitjulu.
