Witness the first rays of the sun set Uluru and the Red Centre alight. Continue to the mystical domes of Kata Tjuta.

Climb a 100 metre cliff and walk 6kms along the rim of the canyon for impressive views of grottos, chasms and cliffs. Deep between the sandstone cliffs is the Garden of Eden, a waterhole surrounded by exotic plants. Or, set off on a two-kilometre stroll along the boulder-strewn canyon creek bed that leads to impressive views of the canyon rim.
