Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is named after two of Australia’s most spectacular sites: the world-famous sandstone monolith of Uluru and the red domes of Kata Tjuta.
Our dual World Heritage-listed park is in the heart of the Central Australian desert, about 450 km from Alice Springs.
The land is owned by the Anangu people and leased to Parks Australia, who manage the national park in collaboration with the Traditional Owners. The nearby Ayers Rock Resort at Yulara provides accommodation, restaurants, shops, fuel and other essential services to park visitors.
As well as its world-famous geological formations and extraordinary Indigenous culture, the park is home to a fascinating array of plants and animals, including many rare species.
