Kata Tjuta, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park
(4.8/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Although Ayers Rock 25 km (16 mi) gets all of the fame, Kata Tjuta is pretty spectacular in its own right. This group of 36 rocky domes also rises mysteriously out of the flat Outback, with the highest peaking 546 m (1,791 ft) above the plain. If you're keeping score, that's 198 m (650 ft) higher than Ayers Rock. If you've come all this way to see the more famous of the rock formations, don't miss this one.

  • If your not riding camels or hanging at your resort the best thing to do is hike. If you have limited time this is one that should be considered 
  • Very impressive landscape with a lot more alternatives and a lot less people then Uluru/Ayers Rock. Make sure you make a couple of walks (esp. valley of winds, it will be windy...bring enough water an...  more »
  • The Kata Tjuta Park is less known than Uluru, but merit that we devote a day. There are much less crowded, and there are beautiful walks. What that very different, the framework is much more varied than Uluru. We liked

  • Majestic! The one word I can describe this place! You have to go to truly appreciate. We visited both Kata Tjuta and Uluru just because these are the only one you should really visit. both changes color  during sunrise and sunset and spectacular to see. There are dedicated locations for sunrise and sunset viewing so thing a car is a must unless you have a tour. In Kata Tjuta we did the Walpa George walk which is a good 30 minutes and was the only available walk during that time. In Uluru we did the based walk for 10 kilometres and you are required to bring water to avoid dehydration! I also climbed Uluru which Im not proud (just saying) because I found the notice not to climb it very confusing because people are climbing too and there are built in chaina for it.
  • Magical place and a must-visit when you're in Australia. Uluru is stunning from every angle. The free ranger-guided Mala walk is highly recommended to better understand the culture of the Anangu people. That said, I found Kata Tjuta even more beautiful. Make sure to spend sufficient time there. Breathtaking landscapes!
  • What a great place! The national park pass is $25p/p and valid for 3 days. Uluru is beautiful and majestic and beautiful red when the sun is in the right angle. I was mad to see how many disrespectful people are still climbing Uluru while it is asked NOT to! Just a question of respect. Kata Tjuta is amazing and has stunning views from the 1st and second look-out. Did the walking trail in just over 2 hours with a stop on each lookout.
  • You'll get the feeling that you landed on another planet. Everything is so different, so new. Beautiful place to go. You'll need to rent a car in order to see the area. Stay there for a few days. Drink plenty of liquids! ;)
  • A beautiful, sacred place. Make sure to do the free guided Mala Walk at 10am every day! The guides teach you about Uluru, and why it is so sacred to the Ananga people.
