Kata Tjuta, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

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. Put Kata Tjuta at the forefront of your travel plans using our Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park vacation planner.

  • Would highly recommend walking the full circuit through The Valley of The Winds. I visited in July and the weather was perfect. Low 20's and not a fly in sight. The walk through The Olga's has so many different areas and views and hasn't been spoilt at all - the pathways are not overdone at all, so it feels like you are walking in the bush on your own.
  • Such a beautiful and serene place. Great place to hike. Make sure you go there in the morning.
  • Fantastic park, well worth the explore and look. Bring water
  • Fantastic. A bit less popular than Uluru but equally magic. Great, a bit tough hike but worth every second.
  • Stunning! Even better than Uluru
