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.

  • Kata Tjuta was incredible! There are TONS of scenic hikes around the rocks- more than Uluru. The scenic lookup for sunrise is definitely worth a stop as you can see both Kata Tjuta and Uluru in one shot. I recommend going during a time where the flies are not overtaking the park or else the hikes won't be too enjoyable. Enjoy the great hikes and pictures!
  • You have to visit... Bigger than uluru and i found more interesting. Only 17%of visitors to the park are taken here so ask to see it
  • Mind blowing. The valley of winds walk is unforgettable. Take plenty of water, some snacks and a good camera.
  • Such majesty. Such sublimity. Honestly, I reckon the Olgas are completely underrated, and are quite possibly just as impressive as the mighty Uluru. Unfortunately, discovering the Olgas meant discovering, too, the last remains of John (pictured below... or elsewhere... wherever you’re able to find the picture.) His false teeth survived the harsh Aussie climate, however, the rest of him was not so successful. We can only hope that the dingoes had a ripper meal and wasted not the remainder of John. May his memory subsist forever in our minds, and his false teeth be a reminder of the dangers the Land Down Under poses.
