What You Can Expect

Kata Tjuta Sunrise and Valley of the Winds Half Day Trip

The Olgas

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 fascinating stories of the geology, history and culture of Kata Tjuta, which is deeply sacred to the local Anangu people.

Kata Tjuta, simply translated, means "heads many". Given the 36 steep-sided domes of Kata Tjuta, it is aptly named. This incredible formation of rock domes extends 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) 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, of which, details of many stories of Kata Tjuta are not known except to initiated men.

Watch the spectacular sunrise over Kata Tjuta with Uluru in the distance from the western dune viewing area, with light breakfast included.

Begin your guided walk through 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.

We had a very interesting day with Michael and Dave from AAT Kings. We went to the sun rise over Kata Tjuta and Uluru, enjoyed a nice packed breakfast and went on to walk up into the Valley of the Winds. Micheal pointed out plants and trees of significance to the local Aboriginal people. This was the best tour we took part in the Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park. Highly recommendable, dont miss it!

Very well organised tour. The sunrise was spectacular and breath taking. Our tour guide Thomas and driver Andrew were very friendly and funny. Thomas introduced a lot of interesting information and knowledge during the trip. We were told one of the walking track was much harder than the other option. Almost give up, but stopped by my 8yo daughter. Yes, the pebbles and loose stones make the track rocky and wobbling. You need steady and flexible joints to cope with it. However, not only my daughter made it successfully, along the trip I also saw elderly people with hiking sticks, fashion travellers with fancy daily boots, many young ages all managed to the lookout. So, maybe sometimes we don't know our limits. But, yes, the pebbles need to be paid much attention to. ALERT

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.

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.

The tour guides were both great - very knowledgeable and they took great care of us in the heat. Cold clothes were appreciated. Too hot so we were not able to do the long walk, but the two shorter ones were fine, too. Scenery is spectacular - good to see both major rock formations in the area. Although the snacks were marginal, the beer and wine at the end as we waited for the Sunset was a nice touch.
