Valley of the Winds walk

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

You have to be reasonably fit to complete this 3 hour walk, but its views are breathtaking and well worth the effort.

Many of our visitors consider Valley of the Winds a must do.

There are two lookouts along the way to give you a better look at the formations of Kata Tjuta.

If you take the full walk, you’ll find yourself far away from everyone and everything, perfectly at peace in the environment. Remember this is a strenuous walk so please bring lots of drinking water, sturdy shoes, sunscreen and a hat.

If the temperature reaches over 36 degrees Celsius, we close the walk after 11 am for people’s safety.

We recommend you do this walk early in the morning especially if you’re visiting in summer. You’re more likely to see kangaroos and other wildlife in the early morning too.
