Travel to magnificent Kata Tjuta, an extraordinary place where 36 mighty red rock domes emerge from the desert floor.
Set off with a guide along the Valley of the Winds Walk, one of the most famous trails in the area.
Follow rocky paths and creeks through the towering rock walls and marvel at the unique plants and animals that survive in this harsh environment. Once the Valley of the Winds lookout is reached, take time to gaze out over the central valley of Kata Tjuta.
Your outback adventure ends with a chance to admire the desert sunset as you sip a glass of sparkling wine.
At the start of your delightful Kata Tjuta Valley of the Winds Walk you will be picked up from your hotel at Ayers Rock Resort in a comfortable coach.
You will be driven to Kata Tjuta, a distance of about 50 km by road from Ayers rock (Uluru). Kata Tjuta is an Aboriginal word meaning 'many heads' and the area is famous for its 36 steep-sided rock domes. Some of the rocks are close together with only narrow gaps between. Others, rounded and polished by the wind, are more spaced apart. The highest is called Mount Olga (462 m/1500 feet).
Your driver/guide will explain the geological history of Kata Tjuta and then escort you on a 2-3 hour walk between the domes of red rock.
The first part of the trail (around 2.7 km) is moderately difficult with some loose rocks and some steep sections but you will be rewarded by stupendous views from the look-out points.
The rest of the Valley of the Winds Walk, (7.4 km complete circuit) is easier. It leads you down between rock walls and along creek beds into the serenity of the wild bush.
At the end of this exciting and worthwhile walk, you can watch a glorious outback sunset while enjoying a glass of sparkling wine.
Return to Ayers Rock Resort approximately 40 minutes after sunset.
