We took a tour to Kata Tjuta and found it very interesting. This formation is geologically different from Uluru but like Uluru is also considered sacred by the local indigenous people. Having experienced Kata Tjuta by tour, I'd recommend that you do the same. You'll see and learn things that you wouldn't if you were on your own.

Very hot but not to be missed. Walk into the gorges and see the sights. wear a wide brimmed hat and a mosquito head net if there in march to keep at bay the black fly swarms.

Kata Tjuta can only be described as spectacular. There are numerous viewing platforms for those essential photos, and the climb into the gorge is not too steep - but wear walking shoes as the rocky ground is cruel on sandal-wearers. At least as impressive as Uluru, and with wonderful views.

The Walpa walk and the Valley of the winds walks are 2 of the most memorable walks you will have in this area. Great views all along the way and the sunrise and sunset views are breath-taking.

This place was breathtaking. Even though it was really hot and there were millions of flies nothing could detract from the beauty of this place. Stop and take photos or even just have an overall view from the sunset viewing platform even during the day.

The Olga's are everything that everyone else has said. We visited on an at and t kings tour but we realised afterwards that if you have a car this is very easily accessible and the outlook, walk sunset sunrise can all easily be reached under your own steam . There really is no need for the coach as they go... More

My wife and I were picked up by our guide for the day Stacy and her trainee Rebecca before dawn and after picking up other guests around Yulara we headed off on a amazing informative tour. A good group of people on the bus from all over the country were asked by Stacy to introduce them selves to each other... More

The 2-3hr Valley of the Winds Walk is a great outback walk through the Olgas. It walks through them into a valley surrounded by these great formations. Well worth doing. Also, the Kata Tjuta Dune viewpoint is a superb and quiet place to watch sunrise over Uluru. Whilst from here Uluru is at a distance on the horizon, you do... More
