Overview

Experience the sunrise over Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), one of the most iconic natural landmarks in Australia's Red Centre. Before dawn, travel into World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and admire the colors of the sunrise over the desert landscape and Kata Tjuta rock formations. Enjoy an outback picnic breakfast followed by a walking tour of stunning Walpa Gorge. This small-group tour is limited to 11 participants, which allows for a more personalized experience.
  • Travel in comfortable air-conditioned 4WD vehicle from Ayers Rock Resort
  • Marvel as the Kata Tjuta rock domes change color during sunrise
  • Enjoy an outback picnic breakfast including freshly brewed coffee and tea
  • Learn about the history and geology of the 36 red rock domes and the park itself
  • Learn the Aboriginal significance of this iconic rock formation

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.

Our tour to Kata Tjuta sunrise was brilliant. Even though it was drizzling rain at times and overcast, it was still great.
Our tour guide Nadia was excellent, we learnt so much about everything and anything to do with Kata Tjuta, Uluru and surrounds.
Breakfast was delicious. The walk into Walpa Gorge was stunning and really worth while. Loved the small group experience too. Couldn't fault anything, it was great from start to finish.

Wonderful, small group and the two guides Emily and Shanna were brilliant in terms of cultural, historic and botanical knowledge. This dawn breakfast tour was unique.

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.

For the first part of the tour you visit a sunrise view platform where one gets great views of the sun coming up behind Uluru and over the Olgas. It was cold and windy, so the walk up Walpa George was a little tough on us older folks. Worth seeing once. Enjoyed the guide.

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed; however, I didn't have access to the park with my booking, and had to pay an extra $25.00. This should automatically be done when I book the tour.
