It’s an early start this morning as you set off to watch sunrise at Kata Tjuta. You’ll take a 40km journey through the desert landscape to the mighty rock formation. On arrival at the viewing area you walk to the best vantage point to see the 36 domes that comprise this spiritual place while watching the sun’s morning glow as the desert comes alive.
Your group will make its way to the western side of Kata Tjuta where you will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy a gourmet picnic breakfast. As you approach the entrance to Walpa Gorge, named for the wind (Walpa) that whistles between the massive domes that shape Kata Tjuta, the result of eons of weathering and continual upheaval, your guide will share the significance of this men’s sacred ceremonial site.
Take a stroll between these mighty conglomerate rock walls as your guide explains how the environment and the geology has evolved over millions of years.
In the evening you can choose to taste Australia's pioneering past, as you enjoy a beer and some outback delights at the do-it-yourself Outback BBQ.
Alternatively, opt for the peace and quiet of the Bough House Restaurant with a buffet dinner.
