Kata Tjuta in the morning sun taken on the way to the entrance to the National Park. The 'Cousin It' type trees are Desert Oaks. They grow small like this with a 'fuzzy head' until their roots find water, then burst into a more normally shaped tree.

Heading into Kata Tjuta to hike The Valley of the Winds.

The walk is about 7.5kms and includes rocky climbs, tracks on open plain tracks and wonderful scenery.

Zebra Finches are always found within 300m of water.
