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.

We liked Kata Tjuta even more than Uluru itself. This is one seriously gorgeous hike. Takes about 3.5 hours. Be warned, it's VERY windy. Also, a guide told us to wear long pants in case of snakes, but we didn't see any. Only encountered one other hiker the entire time we were out there. Will remain one of the best... More

Kata Tjuta is an absolutely stunning place and less crowded than Uluru. We did the longest walk there which was rated as hard but it wasn't too bad. I think the heat made it challenging. The rock formations were incredible. I would have liked to have seen more information signage about the area. Uluru was full of stories about Indigenous... More

We visited in Feb 2014 - if you are in Yulara and visiting Uluru- you can't go past a trip to Kata Tjuta . Again a amazing experience with the creation stories and connection to the land. The beauty and natural formations are ancient and you can feel it. Highly recommend

While probably not quite as impressive as Uluru, Kata Tjuta is well worth a visit. The drive from Uluru has some great scenery also.

If you are visiting Uluru, you should definitely take the time to see Kata Tjuta. You can walk straight in between the rock, which has a beautiful oasis at the end. A much easier walk than some in the same area (kings canyon for example).

Don't forget your flynets! Lovely sunrise here from the viewing platform. A privilege to be allowed to visit one of the Aboriginal sacred sites.

We went prepared for flies with our fly nets and bottles of water but it was baking. 45 degrees C. We walked to the gorge and then returned to the air conditioned coach to collapse. Some of our party saw what we understood to be a rock wallaby - if it was it must have been mad not to stay... More

The Olgas are just too beautiful to put in words. It is really sad that there are so few walking tracks available to discover them. Also the fact that the Aborigenals don't share their knowledge of the place ( the Tjukurpa of the place is too sacred for us tourists ) make its meaning seem less than that of Uluru.

There are 36 domes that make up Kata Tjuta and are made up of a conglomerate of a variety of other rocks which makes the rock formations so interesting. There is the Valley of the Winds walk which is very stoney and uneven but well worth the effort. Another walk is the Walpa Gorge walk which is easier but just... More

Unfortunately the morning was cloudy when we tried to watch the sunrise. However, the viewing platform was topnotch, easily accessible with plenty of space and the ability to see the sunrise on the horizon, Uluru and of course Kata Tjuta. The facilities around Kata Tjuta were also excellent with sheltered tables and toilets a short drive from the start of... More
