Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • Light breakfast
  • Experienced driver guide
  • Comprehensive commentary

Sit back and relax as you travel into the amazing Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. The scenery along the way will amaze you and with luck, you may even see some of the local wildlife such as dromedary camels and kangaroos. On your journey, your experienced driver guide will share with you fascinating stories of the geology, history and culture of Kata Tjuta, which is deeply sacred to the local Anangu people. While sipping on a warming cup of tea or coffee you can enjoy the wonder that is Kata Tjuta at sunrise. Each passing minute brings something new as the domes continue to change colour with the rising sun. This incredible formation of rock domes extends six kilometres into the ground and is the remains of erosion that began more than 500 million years ago. The area is sacred under Anangu men’s law and under this law, details of many stories of Kata Tjuta are not known except to initiated men. On arrival at Kata Tjuta you’ll commence the walk to the Valley of the Winds, heading first to the Karu lookout. With views across the many domes of Kata Tjuta and out into the sacred Anangu men’s area, you’ll be in awe of this natural wonder. Next stop is the Karingana lookout. This walk can be a little challenging, but well worth the effort. It takes you down into a timeless haven within the domes through trickling creek beds. At times of extreme heat the walk may not be available, but will be substituted with an alternative walk. Shorter walks are also available for those not wanting to walk to the second lookout.
