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 walk is quite difficult, but worth it. Train before you go. If you don't want to climb up, go up to the first lookout (difficult) then down the hill and go left to walk along the valley. It's a long walk but not too steep. Take your camera! Water is available along the way in tanks.

Is just as impressive as Uluru but with good walks, good views and stunning sights. A bit arduous for those with mobility or fitness issues but worth a look

Kata Tjuta is an amazing place, stunning rock formations and great views as you walk through the rocks - better than Uluru by far.

Kata Tjuta looks majestic from afar but the walks itself aren't as great and interesting as Uluru. Wonderful view at sunset when departing Uluru's sunset strip

What a stunning place. The 7.4km rim walk, whilst challenging at times "grade 4" is certainly worth the effort. we are in our late 50's & found it reasonable if you take your time to enjoy the scenery.

Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to do the 3 hour walk but we did watch the sunset and it was truly spectacular

We did it in half the time, while stopping for pictures at every corner! Make sure you push yourself to do the whole walk as the best views are after lookout 2! You need to be fit and have good sports shoes for sure: it's not a sealed track for sunday walks! But trust me, the place is magical, the... More

I had done a lot if research before heading out to tjuta national park and I had read you must visit the Olga's. Best advice ever. There is something spectacular about these formations. Completely different to uluru. The walks are soooo much better too. We did the valley of the winds walk.....it was beautiful. Make sure you have plenty of... More

Be first at the gates of the National Park at 5:30 am, so you can be hiking through Kata Tjuta at sunrise. Why? The colours are awesome, there's not many people, and it's not unbearably hot. There's always flies, so be prepared with the Bushmans or a mosquito net hat. Be sure to take a friend so you can oooh... More
