In Kings Canyon make the rocky climb with your guide to the rim of the canyon to be rewarded with marvellous views over Watarrka National Park. Alternatively, you may wish to explore the boulder-strewn canyon floor, an easier walk. Return to Ayers Rock Resort.

Rise early this morning to travel to the Uluru sunrise viewing area. Watch the first rays of the sun set the Red Centre alight while enjoying a warming cup of tea or coffee. Then travel to the mystical domes of Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). On the way enjoy panoramic views of the southern side of Kata Tjuta before arriving at the base of Walpa Gorge.
