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.

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....More

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...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...More

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 -...More

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....More

I found the park very peaceful and scenic. Kata Tjuta is spectacular and awe-inspiring. Especially beautiful during sunrise and sunset. The red sand gives it a unique appearance. Definitely recommend visiting it.

Fabulous walks with amazing rock formations. Can be quite chilly in the windy weather. Come early to see the rich colours.

The Olgas are a must see when visiting central Australia. We went to the second lookout on the valley of the winds walk and it was truly spectacular. Make sure you dont leave it too late in the day as it gets very hot if...More

Yes, you can definitely take the campervan. There is a good-sized car park near the viewing platform/rest areas in the National Park, and it is good hard roads all the way from the resort hotels. Just keep Kata Tjuta on your... More

No need to answer. I discovered that Uluru was the nearest and only available accommodation.
