Surprisingly good

Probably second ranked to Uluru but equally interesting rock Tor. Many gorges, chasms etc more accessible than the other. Surprising amount of vegetation on top of rock.

This is a great place to get up close to this amazing Australian feature. You can take a moderate-level walk through Walpa Gorge with the massive vertical mountain faces on either side of you. A great way to experience the sheer magnitude of this spectacular place. Kata Tjuta is significant place for the local Indigenous men.

This was a family trip. We weren't able to stay more than a few days so we chose to do Uluru and Kata Tjuta and we are so glad that we did. We found the tranquility and beauty awe inspiring. I will recommend to everyone.

August is a fabulous time to visit the Olgas. Beautiful walks up through the gorges, over boardwalks. Fresh drinking water available at the walks. Good roads throughout the parks. Sign posts with heaps of information throughout the whole park. A pristine, well kept superb part of Australia.

We loved this area, unfortunately we did not allow enough time! There is so much to see and do in the Uluru area. At least three days if you don't want to wear yourselves out. So beautiful and peaceful, most wonderful flowers on display at the moment. We were fortunate to be there at the right time of the year... More

We went out in our hire car ( thanks to Thifty ) at about 5am. We worried that we were the only car around but the light was amazing. the Bus didn't turn up for over an hour and they had missed all the best bits. Dress very warm as it was very cold - 5

The valley of the winds walk is one of the must see in this area. Uluru is majestic but kata kjuta is very mystical. By far my most favourite spot in the area. Around every corner a new vista. The walk is not easy. It is very uneven underfoot but as long as you have plenty of water certainly worth... More

We did the Valley of the Winds walk and it's amazing from the first till the last step. Amazing views of the magical red rocks, wildlife, desert flowers... Even the place itself may look busy on some days, during this longer walk (3 hours without hurrying) you will be on yourself most of the time! Enjoy :-)
