It might not be as instantly recognisable as Uluru, but Kata Tjuta is just as impressive as its famous neighbour.
Formerly known as the Olgas, the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta cover more than 20 square kilometres and soar up to 546 metres above the surrounding plain. ‘Kata Tjuta’ is a Pitjantjatjara term that means ‘many heads’.
For Anangu, Kata Tjuta is an extremely important site for men’s business. Everyone is welcome to explore the walking tracks, but the stories and cultural knowledge associated with these rock formations are not shared with visitors.
Nature-lovers will want to experience Walpa Gorge, a narrow creek valley between two of Kata Tjuta’s largest domes. The gorge is a sanctuary for numerous plants and animals including wallabies and gorgeous wildflowers.
