Words and photos really can't describe this area. I fell in love with the Olgas and felt peace as we wondered through the 36 Domes of this incredible formation. Nature abounds. We were able to see creeks flowing and lots of birdlife and the wildflowers were stunning. Its a definite must. Word of warning though, make sure you have the... More

If you get to go to Uluru, you have to visit also The Olgas, about an hour by car from Uluru, it offers even more beatiful views and the chance to hike around a trail that requires a lot more of effort than the base trail at Uluru

A rugged walk to 2 lookouts, but so rewarding. Beautiful scenery, animals and flowers at this time of year. We saw many wild budgies, and the wild flowers were abundant. Some of the rock climbs in this walk are not for the faint hearted so make sure you have proper footwear on, not just the Aussie thong! Take water as... More

Do it!! We had s group of eleven with kids ranging in age from 2 to 17. The walk was beautiful and gorgeous. We had to carry the 2 year old a bit over the rockiest bits but the 6 year old had no issue. Truly something worth doing.

there is the long one going around the rock formations but I did not have the time. But, I did the shorter version which takes about 20-30 min one way depending how many you times you stop to shoot pictures. Be sure to bring plenty of water because it get very hot out there. Then, go to the official viewpoint... More

In contrast to Uluru, I think Kata Tjuta is best seen from a distance. We spent some time at the sunrise viewing platform and the colour changes were spectacular. We were lucky enough to visit the red centre after good rain and the wildflowers were everywhere and certainly decorated the area around Kata Tjuta.

Beautiful place to visit, must see when visiting Uluru. We did the Walpa walk which took about 1.5 hours, not too difficult.

We visited this location in the morning - when it was windy and cool. At a fairly fast pace, it took me between 15 and 20 minutes to hike to the end of the trail. The scenery - especially the view while walking back - was very pretty.

Beautiful views in a beautiful environment. One of my favorite hikes throughout our Australian vacation! Make sure you do the entire roundwalk (I recommend doing it clockwise) but early in the morning! Make sure you bring sturdy shoes; not recommended for people afraid of heights. Enjoy!!
