you can visit on your own at your own time- or you could aks at the excellent visitor center. Since there are many tourist and a few guides you should call in advance wether tehy offer tours or wether there might be a chance for a private tour. I am sure there are tours available you can book in Eilat, too. But it´s really easy to explore on your own, there are excellent maps and signpost and you can decide wether to drive by car clse to the sights or walk longer distances. What you do is best for you (according to your interests) to find out again at the visitor center! just the scenery, rock paintings, Solomons pillars or some mines? Or walking, hiking or cycling? Or having a cup of tee at the caffee? If you want to see the Tabernacle (look at the Bibel) they made a great replica there really wrth a visit! There it´s defintily better to take part at a guided tour where you can get many explanations. That will take you about 1 hour. Probably it´s usefull to inform yourself about times of tours: In the internet tabernacletimna or bereantoberan It´s inside timna park (but you have to pay for both seperatly, but it´s worth the money) You can easily spend a whole day there: There are several great walks also beside the most common ones where most of the tourist are going to. you can walk between 5 minutes and more than 5 hours, there are great canyons, old mines, arches or rock drawings. In case you want to hike get a walking map at the entrance and ask the rangers there. Since you come from Australia you might be used to heat and desert...There are some walks for the whole family, adventures for even little children like to cralw through some mines and arches, and long hikes for the adults. . have a great time there!!! We loved it!
