Kata Tjuta

Drive 40 minutes to Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) to see the 32 massive dome shaped rocks, some of which are taller than Uluru.
There are beautiful walking trails here to enjoy, ranging from easy strolls to longer, more difficult tracks. The longest of the walking trails at 7.4km is the Valley of the Winds walk - somewhat steep but well worth the effort for breathtaking views between the domes and away from the crowds.
The short walk to the Kata Tjuta dune viewing area offers magnificent panoramic view of the domes, an attraction not to be missed.
