I visited The Olgas as part of a tour and hadn't really expected much...was totally blown away! Truly beautiful, a must see! But make sure you bring your walking shoe's. ;)

Everyone comes for Uluru but I love Kata Tjuta (many heads). Fascinating domes formed differently to the rock. The Valley of the Winds walk is the only way to appreciate it. This is a mens sight for the Anangu (local aboriginals) but even a woman and feel the connection here. Powerful place, dont miss it!

These huge rock formations rising out of the desert create a formidable site. Evidently the Olgas have a diameter of more than 40 km and the main rocks more than 20km. It is a huge site. For me...up close it was more interesting than Ayers Rock. And honestly from a distance it was every bit as impressive. I loved the... More

Kata Tjuta has a splendour all of its own. We visited for the evening sunset and returned the next morning for the early light and to walk up the Gorge. The gorge was so worth doing except the sun isn't in a good position for photos until the track is in full sunlight - you have to decide to walk... More

.. as Uluru and just as spectacular. went for a little hike into the canyon. It was beautiful. When you are on your way to Uluru just make a short stop there as well. Bring plenty of water as it gets really hot!

The Olgas are amazing formations, and a trip to the Red Center is not complete unless you visit this place. We did a couple of walks, which was the most amazing way to discover the place. It is as magical as Uluru, and a bit less crowed. A must!

This was an early-riser for us, but well worth it to see the rising sun reflecting off of the low peaks of Kata Tjuta. The colors and shapes seemed to change as the sun rose, which was spectacular. Going to and from the site our tour bus also went by Uluru (Ayers Rock).

I had a car rental so I drove from Uluru to Kata Tjuta right after the base walk at Uluru. It was hot around noon so I couldn't do the base walk at Kata Tjuta. I did the Walpa Gorge walk which was about 2.6Km. I'd have done the base walk here too if it wasn't too hot. I think... More

We didn't realize that the oft recommended Valley of the Winds walk would take many hours so we had to do a shorter walk that was rather disappointing as it was getting dark. Stunning by sunset & sunrise.

The first time I visited Uluru I missed seeing Kata Tjuta. This time we made the effort - and very well worth it it was. Though not as large as Uluru, Kata Tjuta is a fascinating and absolutely unique place. We were very fortunate that it had rained the previous evening to our visit, and a small waterfall and large...
