Today travel to Kings Canyon. You’ll stop at Kings Creek Station for a home-cooked breakfast before continuing to Watarrka National Park. When you arrive you can take a challenging six kilometre hike, that will have you climbing up a 100 metre cliff face, followed a walk around the canyon rim, with impressive views of sandstone walls, grottos, chasms and cliffs. You may prefer to explore the boulder-strewn creek bed, an easier shady walk following the trail between the two sheer walls of the canyon. After your walk continue to Kings Canyon Resort, where you can treat yourself to lunch (own expense), before a scenic afternoon drive back to Ayers Rock Resort. Tonight, enjoy dinner at your hotel.
Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
Rise early and travel to the Kata Tjuta Dune Viewing area for spectacular panoramic views over the formations. You’ll see the morning’s first rays of sun, set the Red Centre alight. On arrival at Kata Tjuta you’ll commence the walk to the Valley of the Winds. You’ll be in awe of this natural wonder, the views are breathtaking. This walk can be a little challenging, but well worth the effort. It takes you down into a timeless haven within the domes through trickling creek beds.
Your Adventure tour comes to an end in the late morning. You will be offered a complimentary transfer to Ayers Rock Airport for your flight.
