  • Uluru (Ayers Rock) is famous worldwide but your stay is not complete without visiting its lesser known but scenically more interesting cousin Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) just 50 km down the road. The best....  more »
  • Great walks with great views however, not suitable for elderly or anyone unfit as there is a bit of stepping and rough terrain to negotiate. If you can manage you won't be disappointed.  more »

  • Amazing walk. Around 2-3hr return. We toured with AAT Kings, we had an amazing experience, very knowledgeable and passionate guides. Great hospitality. Well worth and great rewarding view at the end.
  • The Valley of the Winds circuit walk gets you up close to the domes of Kata Tjuta and shows you a green oasis you wouldn't have guessed was there, as well as great landscapes to photograph. It's a fairly difficult walk and very exposed in places; definitely one for the early morning during the hotter months.
