What You Can Expect
Start with an early morning pick up from Ayers Rock Resort in a 4WD Mercedes Sprinter bus and set out for Kata Tjuta before sunrise. During the 25-mile (40km) drive through Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park watch the sun begin to rise and colour the sky with red, pink and orange. Admire the desert landscape as you approach the breathtaking domed rock formations of Kata Tjuta.
When you arrive at Kata Tjuta, your guide takes you on a short walk to the best area to watch the sunrise. Top off this magnificent experience by traveling to the western side of Kata Tjuta and enjoying a delicious outback-style picnic breakfast including freshly brewed coffee and tea. Soak in the ambience of one of the Earth’s most amazing natural monuments as you spend time in this extraordinary setting.
Continue on to the sheer rock passageways of Walpa Gorge after breakfast. There, learn from your guide how the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta and the surrounding rock formations were shaped into their present form. You will also hear about the spiritual significance of this sacred region to the local Aboriginal people.
At the end of your Walpa Gorge walk your guide returns you to your Ayers Rock Resort hotel.
The trekk was not conplicated at all, but very interesting specually because our guide Emily was so fun to hear when she told us the stories behind the magestic Kata Juta formations. The flies where really annoying, but despite that the entire was really interesting and fun.
The tour was convenient and Dan, our guide, did a great job. We had wonderful views of Uluru during the sunrise, had a nice breakfast of fruit toast and cereal, and then learned some of the local geography prior to taking a hike at Kata Tjuta. We saw a couple of kangaroos as well!
I enjoyed it totally. The walk is easy and the view is extraordinary. The guide gave us good and interesting information of the rock formation, the plants and aboriginal traditions.
Excellent trip, well organised,Kylie the guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Good breakfast and small group size meant we were all included in the commentries and information well. Highly recommend.
The tour guide was marvelous--knowledgeable, personable, everything we could hope for. Very professionally done, very enjoyable. I highly recommend it.
loved the small group and the guide was informative and friendly (always offering to take pictures and a chef breakfast chef as well) - would do this tour again
What an amazing experience, the Sunrise at Kata Tjuta was awesome being in a small group made it very special. Trevor the tour leader was so informative and I doubt there are many with as much knowledge on the area as him. It was the perfect sunrise, we arrived at Walpa gorge before any other group, so we saw Kangaroos, the gorge was very windy and the track is bumpy but well worth it. After the walk a great breakfast was served, so we sat eating as massive bus loads of people all went up the gorge together. Size does matter and in this case the small group size was a Huge bonus. Everyone should experience the Kata Tjuta national park at least once in there lives, I gave the trip to Ayres Rock to my Mother In Law for her 80th birthday and she has not stop raving about it. I also found the staff at Viators very helpful.
Thoroughly recommend this excursion. Guide was fun and informative and the small group a nice experience. Wonderful site to visit
