Kata Tjuta is Pitjantjatjara meaning ‘many heads’. This spectacular landform lies about 50 kilometres drive from Uluru and Yulara. This area is an Anangu men’s site and is sacred under Tjukurpa(traditional law). Everyone is welcome and encouraged to visit this place but as with all areas of the park, please stay on the marked tracks.

Great walks including Valley of Winds which was strenuous and heavy going at times up and down rocks but the scenery is magnificent and I felt a sense of accomplishment when finished.

Awe inspiring - beautiful. We have travelled to Uluru before but missed going to Kata Tjuta. Decided we weren't going to miss out this time and so glad we headed out to experience what I think is one of the wonders of Australia. Loved the whole feel of being there - quiet, contemplative and beautiful. We hired a car and... More

The Kata Tjuta are the other part of Uluru. The are multiple domes which are spread out. It think Uluru has a nicer shape but the walk around the Kata Tjuta was amazing, for me much nicer than the base walk around Uluru. It has nicer views and therefore nicer photo's to make. Definitely worth it.

people usually focus on Uluru, but the Olgas is also a wonderful place to visit. take a quick hike through the pathways to visit the valleys within the Olgas, and pop back out in time for the sunset. a great day trip!

If you are visiting Uluru then you must pop a few kilometres further down the road to visit the Olgas. This is a completely different sight to Uluru and has its own amazing story and views. Again a must see if you are in the area.

This is well worth it whether on a tour which is what we did or in a car. If we came up here again id recommend hiring a car as it gives you much more freedom to do as you please. The light changes over kata tjuta are something you have to see to believe. No one can describe them... More

Much better than that other rock!!!! Way better! These rocks are interesting. Interesting curves and in the heat strangely cool.
