I hadn't been to Kata Tjuta for 30 years and had forgotten how beautiful and immense they are. The Walpa walk was lovely and cool and at the very end there was space to just sit and listen to the birds.

We had hired a car for a couple of days which enabled us to visit Uluru and The Olgas in our own time. My husband took some fabulous photos of the sunset here. Worthwhile having a look.

I love seeing this spectacular place up close. It is always worth the visit. I was only able to see the start of the walk as I was using crutches but this was stunning all the same! There were seats I could use whilst my friends continued the walk! There were times when I could hear the wildlife and no... More

The Olgas are just as dramatic and beautiful as Uluru but in a totally different way. The geology is different, the landscape and the colours are almost surreal in their strength. I really recommend coming in the winter months for the quality of the light as well as the temperature. You don't have to be hugely fit to do the... More

The sandstone formations are just as spectacular as Uluru, but in a different way. Also, hiking through the Olgas is just incredible! They really do look like little heads!

There are toilets and drinking water at the sunset viewing carpark. The walks are well worth doing and not too hard but start early as it warms up quickly.

The Olgas are stunning The walk up the Valley of the Winds was of moderate difficulty but again beautiful( I did both the base walk around Uluru and the Olgas in one day and that was a lot of walking!!)

This was the most amazing experience, walking around this ancient land, treading in the footsteps of travellers from thousands of years ago, wondering what they saw and how they held the land sacred?

We did both short walks. You need to have good hiking shoes / boots as the terrain is hard on the feet and you MUST have water with you. Even in winter, when temperatures are mild it is still very dry. The scenery is incredible and the rocks colours are always changing with different lighting conditions. A 'must-do' at least... More

Valley of the Winds walk is just sensational, full circuit 7.4km with some steep sections but totally worth it, amazing views through the rock formations, make time! Do it after viewing sunrise from sands viewing area.
