Itinerary

Welcome to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park

Sit back and relax as you travel into the amazing Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. The scenery along the way will amaze you and with luck, you may even see some of the local wildlife such as dromedary camels and kangaroos.

Historic Overview

Throughout the journey your experienced Driver Guide will share some history on Kata Tjuta. You’ll hear creation stories passed down by many generations of the Anangu people and learn of the spiritual culture that is ever-present on this land. The depth of your Guide’s knowledge will ensure that this tour is both enjoyable and culturally enlightening.

Kata Tjuta (the Olgas)

Kata Tjuta simply translated means ‘heads many’ and given the 36 steep-sided domes of Kata Tjuta, it is aptly named. This incredible formation of rock domes extends six kilometres into the ground and is the remains of erosion that began more than 500 million years ago. The area is sacred under Anangu men’s law and under this law, details of many stories of Kata Tjuta are not known except to initiated men.

Drinks at Kata Tjuta Sunset

As the sun sets over the western horizon you’ll arrive at the Sunset Viewing Area. Marvel at the unique flora and admire the view of the central valley of the domes of Kata Tjuta as you take in a magnificent outback sunset while sipping chilled sparkling wine. Each passing minute brings something new as the domes continue to change colour with the setting sun.
