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.

Kata Tjuta translates to "many heads" from the local language. We drove around looking at the area which is a nice way to see a broader perspective. There are three walks you can take around Kata Tjuta: Kata Tjuta dune viewing area - a 30 minute walk great at sunrise or sunset; The Walpa Gorge walk - 1 hr round... More

I went to the national park because I wanted to see Uluru, but after walking in Kata Tjuta Uluru just seemed like a big rock. The whole national park is beautiful, but Kata Tjuta has become my favorite.

A definite bonus if coming out here is to hire a car, and if you want the best deal - then do it through the tourism office in Alice. We drove out to see the sunrise, we were given a hot tip to be at the gates to the park before the park opens (around 10min before), that way you... More

This is a place with huge rocks. It is a leisurely 7km walk through the valley. The red ground and rocks coupled with the clear blue sky decorated with cloud in different pattern makes this place great for beautiful photos. A great place to enjoy nature.

I had been told not to miss visiting Kata Tjuta while in Uluru and I can see why. My daughters (20 & 13) and I walked the base of Uluru and the next day walked the Valley of the Winds trail at Kata Tjuta. Without hesitation I would say the Valley walk was the better of the two. The scenery... More

We did the Valley of the Winds Tour (see my review) at the Olgas and I can highly recommend taking the time to do. We also saw the sunset which was fantastic although not as amazing as at Uluru!

Early start but well worth it! A little bit to cold that early but having the sun coming up between the Kata Tjuta and the Uluru was just a great sight for hundreds of photos. When then the first sun shine came onto the Kata Tjuta as well a great look. After a warm cooked breakfast in our campervan, we... More

The longest walk, through the valley of the winds, was well worth the effort. There are some challenging sections, scrambling over rocks, but nothing too strenuous as each difficult section is only for short periods.

Beautiful! About 25 mins by coach from Yalara village where all the hotels and camping grounds are located. We went with SEIT in a small group tour, had a really great guide who explained all the Aboriginal significance and the geology. Two walks available depending on your fitness. Stunning views from inside the gorge. Fabulous.
