Our Guide to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Home to Australia’s most famous icon and a part of the country that holds a special cultural significance to the Aboriginal people, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is one of Australia’s greatest wonders. Just wait until you get there.

At a Glance

Extremely secluded and undeniably beautiful, this national park is one of dramatic sweeping landscapes and inspiring rock formations. Uluru is often the main draw for people, but why speed through over 24 hours when you’re issued a three-day pass and there’s so much more to see?

Your time spent here allows you to experience the authentic Australian Outback, so take a while to traverse these arid lands and really absorb the area’s cultural significance.

What to see

Of course, Uluru will be at the top of your list of things to see when you’ve made the journey to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, and so it should be. This stunning natural monument will astound you with its changing colours and mammoth size. What’s more, we can even arrange for you to enjoy a sunset dinner in view of Uluru where you’ll enjoy gourmet cuisine as the famous changing of the colours takes place before you.

Kata Tjuta, known as ‘The Olgas’ is another formation that we feel is just as impressive as Uluru. A stunning collection of 36 domed boulders, Kata Tjuta is surrounded by deep gorges that allow for intrepid bushwalking tours. These walks will give you an incredible perspective of the rocks and will see you traversing varied and exciting terrain.

As well as trips out to these iconic rock formations, you’ve also got the chance to explore the region on camel-back, by helicopter or on a fascinating aboriginal guided tour. Like we said, 24 hours is just not enough.

Why we like it

What we loved most about the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park was the fact that it has so much more to it than just Uluru. Far from being a quick stop off point, this is an area that deserves a lot of attention and offers a wealth of experiences. It is yet another example of how the Northern Territory continues to surprise and delight us all.
