Enjoy a small-group tour of majestic Kata Tjuta, one of Australia’s most iconic natural wonders. Travel from Ayers Rock Resort in air-conditioned 4WD to Walpa Gorge, part of the Kata Tjuta site within World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Learn the natural history and cultural significance of this sacred site and walk through the gorge for an amazing perspective of this key landmark. Travel in a small group with a maximum of 11 participants for a more intimate experience.
After hotel pick up from Ayers Rock Resort, travel with your guide in an air-conditioned Mercedes Benz Sprinter through the stunning desert landscape of the Red Centre.
Drive about 45 minutes into Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park where Australian native animals including kangaroos and perentie lizards can sometimes be spotted.
When you arrive at Kata Tjuta, your guide leads you on an informative 1.5-mile (2.5km) walk through Walpa Gorge. Learn about the geology of the 36 dome-shaped rock formations that make up Kata Tjuta and admire the sheer scale of the red rock walls that surround you. Hear the wind (walpa) far above and marvel at this ancient place that is sacred to the local Aboriginal people.
After approx. 90 minutes exploring the gorge, your guide returns you to your Ayers Rock Resort accommodation.
We were picked up on time. Our guide Gareth was very good and ensured that we all had water us. It was an extremely hot day. Kata Tjuta was fantastic as we approached. We started the walk, but the heat combined with the uneven surface got the better of us and we cut the tour short and returned to the minibus area and shade. Gareth was very supportive and made sure 'us oldies' were OK. Well worth seeing though.
What an incredible afternoon! Our driver Bruce was very informative and helpful. It was extremely hot and the going was quite difficult for me as I am 6 months post a knee replacement but persevered to the end and Bruce kept checking to see I was OK. Learning about the formation of Kata Tjuta and its significance to the aboriginal people was very fulfilling even to my husband and I who were the only Aussies in the group. The fresh cold water and iced facecloths to help us cool down at the end of the walk were inspirational. Would highly recommend this tour for the insight it brings. Being amongst the grandeur of such a feature makes you feel very insignificant indeed.
Excellent tour. Our guide Brett was attentive and made sure we all had enough water. Because of the heat the walk was shorter than usual but it was good. If we had been on our own we would have probably underestimated the heat and would have suffered from exhaustion. Group size was good.

Our small group tour to Kata Tjuta began on November 13 with our pick-up at the Desert Garden Hotel at 14:30 by SEIT Outback Australia. It took nearly 45 minutes to travel by small bus to Kata Tjuta where the group hiked into a mountainous area with explanations of some of the geology and flora provided on the way. It was not a strenuous walk but hot for which water was provided. There were also explanations of some of the Anunu beliefs involving the Kata Tjuta.
It was a well run tour and the guide was lovely.
This tour was amazing!
Great being in a small group rather than the big buses you see carting tourists around. Excellent guide. Highly recommended.
This was a lovely trip and the guide was extremely informative. It was a very hot day and she made sure everyone was safe on the walk to the gorge. We were able to modify the trip so that everyone got to enjoy the walk, even the least fit. Sylvia was our guide, she was enthusiastic, caring and full of good information. I really enjoyed the trip.

We found the small group tour really good for us and we would recommend it to others.
Really small group tour, because there were only two people, me and my guide (Jess)!! haha She was extremely friendly, and made me feel at home. Although I was more than 30 minutes late (sorry Jess...), she was very kind and welcoming. Kata Tjuta itself was plain amazing as well. Highly recommended!!
