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 didn’t pay for a tour; I just wandered around by myself (and left as soon as I could, as totally freaked out). I am sure it can get crowded, but that may be a good thing if you are sensitive like me. Not many people (at least living ones!) there when I went. Never been to such an “energy”... More

Stunning, the colours are breathtaking. Take plenty of water. Seen from the air also makes you realise how enormous these features are. Still used by the aboriginal people for ceremonies. Stunning scenery and a geological mind bender!

The domes are magnificent. So many of them and the walk was great, if not a little rugged in places. A must see place.

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.
