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.

The scheduled guide did not show up. We decided to head out ourselves, which worked out well, although we underestimated how long it would take. Bug nets are essential, as well as lots of drinking water. Quite different from Uluru.

We travelled as a family in July 2003 and as teens we were a bit over the walking through bushland thing after seeing Uluru and Kings Canyon, but in hindsight it was a great experience and beautiful sight.

To fly over the ranges by helicopter is something to appreciate the vast and magnificent expanse and the structure of these magic mountains which are thousand years old. A real thrill to witness natures wonders.

Quiet and beautiful location. Nice, neat and clean accommodation. Host and care taker were very caring and available for all one needs. Nice homely feeling away from home. I would recommend all on business or holiday to definitely experience stay at Sunbird guest house for sure.

I enjoyed visiting the Kata Tjuta and the tour guide was very informative. It was a blistering 116 degrees! I do recommend a face netting for the flies! But definitely worth the visit!

Personally, I felt that the Kata Tjuta composed of 36 domes was not as spectacular as Uluru, possibly because we did not attempt to make sunrise and sunset trips to this attraction like we did with the Uluru thus did not catch a glimpse of its vibrant colours under the rising and setting sun, and then with a bigger span,...

The trails are closed if the weather is above a certain temperature, or if it is past a certain time (due to temperature), so most tours will go first thing in the morning to complete the hikes before the sun gets too hot. It is absolutely stunning and a very unique scenery. I highly recommend these hikes if you are... More

When visiting the national park, Uluru is not the only attraction. The other great monolithic rocks are Kata Tjuta. Again very beautiful to see at sunrise and sunset.

Like Uluru this is an interesting site. Take the time to understand what your seeing and treat it with respect.
