An Odyssey Down Under: Australia and New Zealand Day 27

Tuesday, March 3

Our day started with a visit to Kata Tjuta or also called the Olgas. It is a group of large rock formations that look like domes. This formation isn’t far from Uluru. Kata Tjuta also is sacred to the local Aboriginal Anangu people who lived here form over 22,000 years.

We walked along the Dune path. It’s an easy walk to the lookout of the grassy hills and valleys that surround Kata Tjuta’s domes.

We also did the Walpa Gorge walk. It was a rocky track that rises to a small track. It is a natural creek that carves between the two tallest domes of Kata Tjuta. You walk through the rugged walls of the gorge. The scenery was breathtaking.

After our morning at Kata Tjuta, our motorcoach took us to the Ayers Rock Airport for our flight to Cairns!
