Day walks red centre

Postby Juudbruinsma » Mon 29 May, 2017 6:49 pm

My partner and I will be visiting the red centre in June. We're only there for a week and will be driving the loop Alice Srings - Glen Helen - Kings Canyon - Katja Tjuta - Uluru - Alice Springs.

Any tips for good day walks (or shorter) along the way? We have pretty much one full day at each site.

If your interested in day walks in the red centre click on Northern Territory in the word index on my blog. I've probably written up over 20 day walks in the area, the walks range from very easy to fairly hard.http://goinferalonedayatatime.blogspot.com.au

John and Lyn Daly published a walking guide book for the Northern Territory, I think the book is out of print now but when I was in Alice last summer it was still in stock in some shops in town. The book may also be available as an E book on the 'Take A Walk' website.

Cheers Kevin

In the one day with the family at Uluru we climbed the rock for sunrise, then circumnavigated it [~9km] and then did the Valley of the Winds and Walpa Gorge walks at Katja Tjuta.
At Kings Canyon we did the loop walk over about 3 hours.

For the stretch Glen Helen to Alice, see my short sections of the Larapinta report were I was going solo for a week:
