  • We did the 7.4 km walk around Kata Tjuta a couple of days ago. What an amazing place. It's a decent climb and a bit of a struggle for the less fit people, but well worth the effort. So very glad we di...  more »
  • Ballad to do. It's the most beautiful walk of 2 sites (Uluru-Tjuta /Kata) in my opinion. A little difficult, I recommend to people with mobility problems as there are Rocky passages.

  • This is a fantastic and not very hard walk I'd highly recommend, in fact The Olgas are more impressive than Uluru in many ways. There's a couple of water stations around the track which came in handy as we didn't get out there until after 10 and it was really starting to heat up by the time we finished. We walked the trail anti clockwise which I think turned out to be lucky as the harder sections were taken care of early in the piece. The views are amazing and once you're in amongst the rocks where there's creeks and vegetation you begin to understand why this area was so significant to the indigenous population. My tips are go early, go anti clockwise, don't forget a hat and water bottle.
  • Amazing experience, stunning landscape. The hike is challenging in places, but well worth the views. The tour guide is well versed in everything, from local culture and history to knowledge of the local flora and fauna.
  • Probably one of the best places to visit in the red centre. It’s a beautiful, significant site. Treat it with respect and enjoy the beauty it has to offer.
  • Well worth the walk. Just be sure you are sensible and safe given the temperatures and your fitness levels.
  • Great views tough walks well worth it

Where to stay in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

The extremely remote desert location of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park makes it difficult to find accommodations near the landmark site, despite its incredible popularity. Most guests stay in the "nearby" city of Alice Springs-- 365 km (227 mi) from the park--and take a guided day trip to visit the rocks. If you have your own transportation, consider staying at the solitary hotel near the national park's entrance.
