We went to the Olgas just before sunset and found a great position. The Olgas's colour changes as the sunsets, really worth a visit.

Much bigger than Uluru, and much more impressive. In my opinion it's more interesting to see this than Uluru. You can't walk to the top, but there are walks around it with great views. A lot of flies.

Having your own hire care for one day was best idea for us to take our time to see everything. Walking around or through the Olga's was hard for me as it path was very rocky, due to rain protection I think, most walked up on the edges. We stopped at the viewing point on the way, to take some... More

Don't miss the Kata Tjuta. This group of rocks, rather than the Uluru, is almost the centre of Australia. While I was totally awed by the Uluru, I don't think any visitors should skip the Kata Tjuta. The afternoon is a better time to visit as the sun rays will bring out the vibrant red colour of the rocks. We... More

We did the sunrise breakfast first then the full long walk through the (valley of the winds I think they called it) breakfast pack was great but a bit too cold for us to be eating a crisp apple and cereal lol We got the second lookout point then walked down through the valley as our tour group was going...

Spent the afternoon visiting the Kata Tjuta. We were on a tour and taken to a place where we could walk up in the cleft between the "heads". Spectacular! A must see!

An Interesting rock formation visible from Uluru, but a decent drive between them. Not as good as Uluru, but you should still see them while you're at the Park. I did the Walpa Gorge walk while I was there. It was a nice scenic walk between two of the heads. An easy (non accessible) 1hr return walk, just be prepared... More

I really enjoyed seeing these amazing rock formations and learning about the geologic history of the area. It was super hot and buggy. Absolutely get fly nets to cover your head and face.

Brilliant viewing at sunset from one of the lookouts, great photo opportunities. Several easy and short walking tracks available, plus longer walks too.
