  • 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.
