was a great attraction with some challenging walks, however we only had half a day and wish we had a whole one (so we could do all of the walks)

We liked this better than Uluru. The scenery was quite varied and there were plenty of good photo ops. We also liked having the shade when walking in between the rocks. There is one place where you look out over the valley below and it's like a scene out of The Land Before Time. We saw rock kangaroos while we... More

Great walk with stunning views definitely worth seeing, we loved it but make sure you don't walk around Ayers Rock first or you will be to tired to explore it too much

Kata Tjuta is a must to visit when you have come this far as it is only about 30 minutes extra to drive from Uluru. Kata Tjuta is completely different to Uluru in geology, colours and landscape and not having been here for over 35 years, it was great to be reminded how beautiful and big the large dome shaped...

Another amazing piece of Australia lots walks including to the gorge. Walkways all easy to follow and well worth going on. The rock formations are amazing - we are blessed to be able to live in such an awesome country. Enjoy visiting these ranges.

The Olgas are beautiful. You can't visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and not visit the Olgas too. If you're planning to take photos, get there early and check the sunrise times yourself and don't rely on the hotel information. On the night we went to Uluru, they gave out the wrong information. We had checked the time the sun... More

The national park is very well maintained with reasonably easy walking tracks and lots of information about them.

Well worth visiting when you are at Uluru. Only a 30 minute drive from the rock. Unfortunately I didn't do any walks here, but am told they are also great.

Spend a short time walking Walpa gorge during a sunny but breezy afternoon. The formation is fascinating and breathtaking. Make sure you take water and come with comfortable walking shoes. Did this while its still winter so the walk is much easier than during hot summer afternoon
