Kings Canyon Rim Walk

Thoroughly enjoyed this walk. Lots of steps up to top to begin with, but an interesting and beautiful walk. Nearly 4 hours with a few breaks along the way.

Uluru Circuit

A flat but long 10km loop around the base of Uluru. Amazing views up the rock and especially in the gullies leading to water holes, if there has been any rain! Best done in the morning before the sun gets high as the shadows and colours are amazing. In summer it would be unbearable any other time than first thing. Limited water spots so take plenty with you. Smaller children will run out of puff and once you are around the far side there are no shortcuts back. For an easier option try the bikes, hired from the cultural centre.

Uluru Summit

The climb of Uluru is allowable at this stage (last day 26th October 2019), on a daily basis. Circumstances of excessive wind or heat are the more common reasons behind the climb's closure. You probably would not want to climb Uluru under those conditions anyway.

Valley Of the Winds

In comparison to Uluru, this walk is certainly more scenic.
It took me 2 hours to finish, but that was with MANY photo stops.
The environment is very tranquil. Try and soak it all in and not rush. And when they say 'valley of the winds', there are lots of valleys and its very windy (but pleasant as its very cooling).

During the walk, wear proper foot wear. It's actually quite easy to roll your ankles.
All I took was a camera, a hat, and one bottle of water, and found this was ample.
Absolutely spectacular Scenery, with many outstanding photo opportunities.
