Kata Tjuṯa Sunset
Welcome to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park
Sit back and relax as you travel into the amazing National Park while your Driver Guide shares insights into the natural and cultural history of this fascinating region.
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.

The highest point is Mount Olga, which rises approximately 546 m above the surrounding plain, 203 m higher than Uluṟu!
The name 'The Olgas' comes from the tallest peak, Mt. Olga which was named in 1872 by Ernest Giles in honour of Queen Olga of Württemberg!
The domed mountains of Kata Tjuṯa cover an area of 21.68 km² and are composed of a coarse grained conglomerate of granite, gneiss and other volcanic rock.
Many Aboriginal Dreamtime legends are associated with this place. The great snake Wanambi is said to live on the summit of Mount Olga and only comes down during the dry season.
