Starting from the car park at the end of Kata Tjuta Road, Petermann, this walk takes you into the Walpa Gorge and back via the same-titled singular track. Prepare to be humbled by the sheer size of the Kata Tjuta as you view the rock formations from below. The gorge acts as a refuge from the relentless dry environment and features a seasonal stream that allows the spearwoods and other plants to survive here. You can expect some refreshing breezes while in the gorge, as the word “Walpa” means windy. Time your journey well and experience a fascinating sunset here. This place is sacred to Anangu Aboriginal people, so please be respectful by being quiet and staying on track. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
