Rise early to travel to the Uluru sunrise viewing area to watch the first rays of the sun set the Red Centre alight. Then travel to Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). On the way enjoy panoramic views of the southern side of Kata Tjuta from the viewing platform, before arriving at the base of Walpa Gorge. Spend some time exploring the gorge and the unusual rock formations.
