What You Can Expect

Valley of the Winds Walk and Kata Tjuta Sunset Tour

Kata Tjuta at sunset

Your tour begins with pickup from the Ayers Rock Resort. Relax on the scenic trip through Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, and keep a lookout for the park's wildlife, including kangaroos, camels and wild horses.

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.

Great guide and driver . Unfortunately the valley of the winds longer walk was cancelled due to the heat but we still did the shorter walk which was stunning, and got to see the Walpa Gorge which was a lovely bonus. Sunset was great.
Would not hesitate to recommend it. Thanks for a great day.
