An unexpected amazing experience. Walpa gorge & Valley of the winds walks not to be missed. Spectacular geography.

Not quite as amazing as Uluru, but it comes close. You'd definitely want to visit this if you're at Uluru anyway. It's also a bit quieter

Fantastic to visit - photos and TV footage don't do the magnitude of Kata Tjuta justice. Kata Tjuta is a very special place and it is easy to understand why it is so culturally significant.

Walk among giants. Give yourself time to see all the red centre has to offer. Uluru is just the beginning. Put it on your bucket list!

One of the most spectacular sites I've ever seen. We walked to the valley of the winds 2nd lookout, it is a hard difficult walk but we made it. We stayed for about 30 mins to take in the beautiful surroundings. We turned around and came back it was about 5.4km and took us around 2.5hrs. Most people kept going... More

The Olgas are in one way better than Ayres Rock. Far less people! They are beautiful, quite surreal as the light changes on them. In the sunset, we were bathed in ethereal red.

You will not regret it. It might be challenging for some but the views you get at the end is something else. I've never seen like it in my entire life.

A lot of people say the Olgas are better than the rock and I can see what they are saying. Its hard to put into words why I enjoyed this more than the rock but I certainly did. Maybe because its less crowded and you are not walking on a smooth path so it feels a bit more natural. The... More

After viewing the sunrise over Kata Tjuta, we drove around to take the short walk through Walpa gorge. From a distance, you don't realise how massive the domes are. The size doesn't show up as well in photos, but in person it is very impressive. As we went in winter, it was very cool in the gorge out of the... More

We spent a couple of hours trecking through Walpa Gorge, however Karingana Lookout and Karu Lookout in Valley of the Winds provide great scope for photographers. Sunrise ans sunset views are available.
