Rise early to watch the first rays of the sun set the Red Centre alight while enjoying a warming cup of tea or coffee. After the gorgeous sunrise at Uluru, 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. Spend time exploring the gorge and the unusual conglomerate rock formations.
