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.

Ayer's Rock gets all the attantion. Admittedly the Olags are a bit less impressive but no trip to this part of Oz is complete without a visit to these rocks. Try some of the walks and after a while you can even have the place to yourself. Very beautiful views but bring plenty of water and don't evn think about... More

I had wanted to do this walk for many years, even engaged in strength training for a couple of months prior to the walk. A difficult walk (for me) past the 1st lookout but was given lots of help by the tour guide. Uneven surfaces mean that you do one thing at a time - either walk carefully concentrating on... More

To me Kata Tjuta was not quite as impressive from a distance as Ularu because (ironically) there are so many peaks... it's not as isolated or singular. We didn't have time to go on any lengthy walks or see Kata Tjuta up close, but it was worth driving to the dune viewing area for photos, etc. There is a nice... More

A trip out to Kata Tjuta is an absolute must. The Valley of the Winds walk is stunning with the monumental scale of the domes towering majestically above the path. Made up of 36 domes only a few sections are open to the public as it is a sacred site for the Anangu people who are the traditional owners. It... More

Despite having done the best part of 12 kms walking around The Rock the next day we walked the Walpa Gorge and the Valley if the Winds, the latter by walking the whole loop. Both were good, the latter a fairly serious hike. As I have heard said The Rock gets you here but Kata Tjuta holds you here.

We spent a few hours there with a couple of nice walks. Having visited Karijini in the past, it was noticeable the difference . The Olgas were amazing on approach, but I was a little let down once in there. Karijini was the exact opposite, where the approach was nothing, but once there, the views were amazing. I guess I...

Fantastic to visit the gorge and valley of the winds for a day of hiking. Not sure it would be worth the drive just for the quick stop that many guided groups seem to do.

A longer drive from thehoel than Ayers Rock but great hiking in both locations. The first offers up to 4 miles on a very rocky trail. The 2nd is about a mile into a canyon.The enrgy is magnificent. On th shorter trail, tourists tend to remain in groups and block the path; nontheless the walk is well worth the effort.

We arrived early in the morning while the temperatures were cool and the flies weren't too bad. If you don't like flies on your face wear a fly net. We did the approximately two hour hike up the "canyon". Along the way we saw a couple of kangaroos which added to the enjoyment and natural beauty of the walk. This... More
