Step out of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to go to Alice Springs and see Curtin Springs, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Uluru, go for a walk through Lungkata Walk, hike along Uluru Hiking Path, and contemplate the waterfront views at Mutitjulu Waterhole.
