What You Can Expect

Valley of the Winds Walk and Kata Tjuta Sunset Tour

Kata Tjuta at sunset

Explore the mystical landscape of Central Australia, including one of its most famous features — Kata Tjuta (also known as The Olgas). After pickup at Ayers Rock Resort, travel through the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park while your guide shares commentary about the fascinating geologic and cultural history of the area.

When you arrive at the base of Kata Tjuta, explore the ancient rock formation on a guided walk through the Valley of the Winds. Observe the native ecosystem and hear Aboriginal stories passed down from the Anangu people, who have considered the site sacred for thousands of years. 

Along the 2- to 3-hour walk, take in spectacular views across Kata Tjuta’s 36 red sandstone domes and the surrounding landscape from the Karu lookout and other vista points. The walk is moderately challenging and requires a good degree of fitness. 

As the sun begins to dip toward the horizon, head to a sunset viewing area inside the park. Enjoy Australian sparkling wine and savory nibbles as Kata Tjuta’s legendary domes are bathed in the shifting golden hues. At twilight sweeps across the desert landscape, relax on the return ride to Ayers Rock Resort.

This was a standout of our trip. The tour guides were really lovely, and you could tell they genuinely loved their jobs. I will always remember this sunset - it was breathtaking.

It was very hot when we did this so it was cut short a bit but still entirely worth it! The views were amazing!

Great tour with excellent guide and driver providing us with lots of interesting facts about the rocks, wildlife, vegetation and the aborigine culture/beliefs.
The sunset experience was great with champagne and nibbles on offer, we enjoyed this far better than at Ayers Rock.
The guide and driver also were extremely attentive and ensured we were comfortable in the heat, there was iced water available to top up our water bottles and we were kept cool on the bus in between stops.
Do not miss this tour if you can help it.
Thanks.

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.

I loved Kata Tjuta sunset tour. Ayres Rock or Uluru is always the big attraction however, the sunset at this site was amazing. This is enormous. Thanks to AAT Kings for their very knowledgable and interesting driver and tour guide.

Amazing tour! We did two walks that were each about one hour or a little more each. The extreme heat left us without doing the third walk but that was okay and out of their control. The Park controls that and not the Tour Companies. The walks were unreal with great scenery everywhere. Everywhere you looked was a great potential picture. I did not want it to end.
