Amazing to see and worth a trip if you plan to go to Uluru as both compliment each other. We climbed on trails into the area and found breathtaking views. Close up and from a remote viewing point this is a natural outback view and worth going.

For anyone except for the really prepared I would say find a tour. We went on one through valley of the winds (separate review) and the area is magical. If you've ever wondered if it is worth it compared the main attraction (some other rock in the area :) then I would have to say for sure. Make sure you... More

This I found more interesting than Uluru (Ayers Rock). The size and shape of it all I found mind bending. Its on a much bigger site but you are more limited to access via 4 wheels. I found it hard finding a decent spot for a good photo but think I got some good ones from the sunset/sunrise points. Watch... More

Most people go for the rock, make sure you also see Kata Tjuta!!! amazing!!! Totally different! but wonderful. Just be aware of the rating of the walks, we got caught out and I was puffing and panting and turns out it was a rating 3, I thought it was a rating 1!!! bahahaha. Just make sure you take the water!!!

We did both the Valley of the Winds and the Walpa Gorge hikes. The Valley of the winds took us about 3 hrs and it is very rocky and quite strenuous in places. Good sturdy shoes are a must and lots of water. The views are worth it though. The second lookout is spectacular. We went the reverse way around... More

We did a tour through AAT Kings which was fantastic. First we walked the Valley of the Winds path until it got to a very difficult section and then we walked back and walked the Walpa Gorge trail. As we are not used to hiking, we found it difficult on our ankles walking on such rocky terrain, and did not... More

How can rocks be so fascinating?. Yet both Uluru and Kata Tjuta (Ayers Rock and the Olgas to offend the politically correct) manage this. Uluru is magnificent just for its sheer size, it takes two hours of brisk walking to go round it, but don't just do that. Stop and look at the Aboriginal artwork, don't think it's ancient by...

The flora and fauna that exists in the shadowy gorge of this part of the Olgas is interesting. The shad is MUCH cooler than the exposed rock. It's a very doable hike for children. Some wooden benches at the end of the hike to ponder and rest. DON'T MISS KATA TJUTA!

We'd booked a walk to Kata Tjuta on the understanding it was relatively flat as I am both asthmatic and recovering from a broken ankle. It certainly wasn't flat and the stony ground played havoc with my ankle. In the end my husband went on and I returned to the start and sat in a shady area admiring the scenery.... More

Such an amazing place, I made myself do the 1.6km walk to the second lookout. This is a MUST. Such an amazing place. It was hot, it was dry, I got sunburnt, but deal with it. I wouldn't exchange the experience for anything!!
