Take a leisurely stroll through Walpa Gorge and admire the towering domes of Kata Tjuta, a sacred Aboriginal site. This rocky but easy return track follows a small stream through a desert wildlife refuge, ending at an observation platform between the sheer red walls of the domes. Take your time to notice the rare plants along the way and soak up the scenery while listening to the refreshing wind whistling through the gorge. Put on some sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a hat, and remember to take plenty of water.

  • This is a relatively easy walk BUT like the longer Olga’s walk it’s vital to wear decent walking shoes as the trail is loose and uneven. I saw a bunch of young blokes today head off in thongs and sandals. I’m sure they’d complete the walk if they were determined enough but unwise to start with.
  • The guide, Greg, was great. There was rain just before we got there so it was beautiful - and not scorching hot. It would have been wonderful even without the rain
