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.

“loved it”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

fantastic views, that's absolutely
We did the full circle - valley of winds. characterised as difficult
and Kings Canyon one was characterised as moderate. I don't know who did the gradation, but i foundit to be the other way around,,, Valley of Winds is an absolute pleasure compare to the stairs in Kings Canyon - so don't be afraid of the gradation...
Plus that's one of the few, if not the only one, that has access to water on the way - fantastic
but still take

“The Olgas”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

They were awesome, some nice walks, but very rough, you need good shoes on. Trainers are fine. We didn't bother walking down to the Valley of the Winds .. too far and we were hot and sweaty. We walked to the first Lookout.

“Overview”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Flew overhead in a small plane which does give the best view
They look very much like the rear ends of animals sticking up out of the ground

“A great compliment to Uluru”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is about 30km from Uluru and worth the drive. They have a different feel but the same level of majesty and antiquity.

“Spectacular scenery”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We did both walks at Kata Tjuta - Valley of the Winds (7.4 kms, difficult) and Waipa Gorge (2.6 kms, moderate). We found that the longer (Valley of the Winds) walk was by far the more scenic and worthwhile to do. We had originally planned on only going to the first lookout so didn't take water, snacks, sunhats, sunscreen, etc. Once we got to the lookout, however, we decided to push on and do the whole walk. Fortunately it was June so it was not nearly as hot as it can get, but we were still pretty warm and thirsty by the time we finished. We will definitely be better prepared in future. It took us only 2.5 hours to do the whole walk as we kept up a steady pace, apart from stops to take photos. The scenery was spectacular and it was wonderful to see budgerigars and zebra finches in their natural habitat. We had wanted to visit Uluru for many years, and were excited to do so, but the surprise for us was Kata Tjuta which we thought was even better.
