Owner description: 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.

Although a bit of a drive, I found this area impressive. It made a great 3rd day activity for the family visiting Uluru. Some nice canyon hikes that even my 3yr-old could do in 36-C temps.

The canyon walks are great but be warned they can be very hot so definite need for sun hats, sun cream and plenty of water. Kata Tjuta is fascinating to compare including in a geological sense with Uluru. Also compare the sunset there with Uluru.

There is not much in Uluru/Yulara, so you might as well come see the Olgas. There is a nice walk here to a chasm that is interesting. I wouldn't come here just to see this, but while you are looking at desert rocks, why not?

Kata Tjuta is a superb experience! It appears from a distance to have so much more character than Uluru (however up close Uluru is equally rugged). You can do the walk up the canyon which takes around 30 mins and gives some great views of the rock. The valley of the winds walk (around 2 hours) will close after 11am if the temperature is over 36 degrees. Almost every day in summer therefore it is closed so go early. One big piece of advice, pick up a fly net before you venture out. Although don't be too paranoid about getting bitten, they are mostly just flies but hundreds of them. Entry to the park is $25 for three days (only option) and includes Uluru.

If you made the huge, and in my opinion unnecessary, effort to travel to this area you might as well see this place
Probably more impressive and incalculably less photographed than Uluru. The amount of photographing of Uluru is mind blowing- a great waste of effort.
