Tabletop Track

A 40-50km circuit in Litchfield National Park in the Northern Territory: the length depends on which access track is used to access the circuit. The walk goes through an arid and often burnt landscape, but is punctuated by beautiful waterholes and creeks. There's a pretty good chance you'll have one of the three camping sites to yourself.

Uluru Summit

THIS WALK IS NOW CLOSED.

Iconic, surreal, majestic, imposing, striking, spiritual, magical. Everyone's impression is different, which might be one reason why no description is included in any Uluru promotional material of this wonderful sandstone monolith.

Valley Of the Winds

Kata Tjuta is Pitjantjatjara, meaning ‘many heads’ consisting of 36 stunning domed rocks and is an Anangu men’s site and sacred under Tjukurpa (traditional law),
Take your time and soak in this very tranquil environment with absolutely spectacular scenery. The views are breathtakingly surreal and worth the effort, as the track takes you through valleys, along creek bed and far away from everyone and everything.
And when they say 'valley of the winds', there are lots of valleys and it can be very windy!
