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.

I looked so forward to this tour, only disappointment was the limited area we could hike. If you have a walking stick, bring it. This is not an easy hike for anyone with knee, leg, foot, hip issues. Not impossible, just have a stick. Very pretty, got some wonderful pictures. There is one bathroom stop after the walk at the... More

I found this place so beautiful and interestingly my husband and son found it particularly spiritual. I say interesting, as we found out later that this area is Traditionally the "Men's Place" and Uluru is traditionally the "Women's Place". Would definitely recommend walking the 7.4km loop.

We chose to take part in an organised tour which started with watching the sunrise over Uluru and Kata tjuta. We were picked up from our hotel by our tour guide Kim with Seit tours. We chose to go with Seit as we like the idea of a small group. Seit guarantee no more than 11 people on each tour.... More

The 50 minute drive from Uluru is well worth it. Amazing formation with fewer flies then Ayers Rock. Walpa Gorge is the best of the short walks

This is another sedimentary rock formation like Uluru with nearly equal size and beauty. Take the evening tour where you can walk into the small canyon. You may even see a hill kangaroo (smaller kangaroo). The tour then takes you to a sunset viewing of Uluru.

Even though this is less famous than uluru it will not dissapoint. The walks are fantastic and everyone the does them loves them. Sunset is also fantastic but there are better vantage points than the one designated for this as the trees block the view.

My family and I did the hike through The Olgas one afternoon to make it back in time for a few photos at the Sunset viewing place. I thoroughly enjoyed Kata Tjuta and think that it is just as incredible as Uluru! If you visit Ayers rock then you MUST go to the Olgas. So peaceful.

Less famous than the big Rock just up the road, but in my opinion far more picturesque. Definitely a MUST to do the entire loop walk, through the Valley of the Winds. Without doing this, you just see the outside of the Big Top without seeing the show on the inside. Views are better than at Uluru.
