What You Can Expect
During the trip to Kata Tjuta, listen to your guide's expert commentary about central Australia’s ecology and hear some of the creation stories passed down over the millennia by the local Anangu people.
The stories reveal the Aboriginal people's special connection to the landscape you're traveling through, including the sacred sandstone domes of Kata Tjuta, meaning 'many heads.' The sacred formation of 36 giant rock domes extends for 4 miles (6 kilometers) through the park.
Arriving at Kata Tjuta, explore this legendary site on a 2- to 3-hour guided walk through the Valley of the Winds. Take in amazing views across the red sandstone domes at the Karu lookout, as you follow winding rocky tracks to the Valley of the Winds lookout area for more tremendous views over the central Australian desert. This walk can be a little challenging, and requires a good level of fitness.
As the afternoon draws to a close, your tour takes you to the sunset viewing area at Kata Tjuta. Enjoy a glass of chilled sparkling wine with nibbles as you take in the amazing sight of an outback sunset at Kata Tjuta. Watch the domes change color in the fading light as the sun sets behind the horizon.
Relax on the return journey to the Ayers Rock Resort as the outback sky turns from dusk to night.

Grace did a fantastic job of telling us the historical and ecological significance of the area. She also carefully guided us through a challenging hike. Highly recommend..............take the long hike. The view is amazing!
Great tour, worth the 8km walk! Had a choice to do the long or short walk, we decided to do the long walk and it was amazing, the AAT Kings tour guides were fantastic. After the walk we watched the sunset with a glass of bubbly and nibbles, I would highly recommend.
