Day 3

Kings Canyon to Ayers Rock

In this region of the Northern Territory, you will be inspired by some of Australia's most significant natural attractions, the most famous of all being Ayers Rock/Uluru. West of Ayers Rock Resort is Mt Olga, a collection of weathered red domes, the tallest of which stands 200 metres taller than Ayers Rock. At sunset, the Olgas hold their own light show to rival the Rock's - both inspiring, but individually unique. For experienced walkers, the Olgas offer a four to five hour walk through the poetically named Valley of the Winds. For an easier walk with great views taking only an hour or so, go to Olga Gorge (Tatintjawiya).
