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.

Kiarne was our guide on this fabulous tour which started at a viewing platform in the national park. We watched the sun rise over Uluru and Kata Juta before being taken to our walk. This was not an easy trek as the ground is very rocky throughout and we found we had to watch our footing even though we are... More

it's easy to visit the big rock that everyone has heard of (Uluru) and skip Kata Tjuta - don't. if you're making the trip to the middle of nowhere to look at a bunch of big rocks; well then these are big rocks not to be missed.

Ok leave yourself enough time to do the valley of the winds loop. Say 4 hours so you can stop and enjoy the atmosphere. The first lookout is average but the second lookout is stunning. Can be rocky in parts so good shoes help but plenty of people do it in joggers.

Visited these again whilst on a trip to Ayers Rock. Wonderful shaped mountains/hills very much higher than Ayers Rock, quite a rocky under feet walk through to the waterfalls if any rains has fallen. Beautiful orange colours and well worth a visit whilst in that area.

It was well worth the early morning and cold start to watch the sunrise over this majestic formation. We later found a quiet picnic spot and cooked our breakfast sitting listening to natures sounds. The walks are enjoyable although a bit strenuous in places.

Although lesser known than Uluru, the remarkable red domes of Kata Tjuta are no less magnificent. The geological wonder is sacred to the Anangu aboriginal people. In their language, Kata Tjuta means “many heads.” There are two main trail areas: The Valley of the Winds with several options and the short but scenic Walpa Gorge. Even though there's a warning...

Uluru is the big attraction for obvious reasons but i have always found Kata Tjuta to have some special resonance and has a strange pull on anyone who visits.

Quite spectacular but not everyone makes the effort as it is some 40 to 50km from Uluru itself and the lodges. But it is still one of the major attractions and is definitely worth making an effort.
