Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)

You are here Home  > Northern Territory  > Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park >  Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)

Kata Tjuta, meaning ‘many heads’, is comprised of 36 rocks and in many ways this rock formation is a more rewarding destination than the more popular Uluru.

There are several hiking trails among Kata Tjuta that include the relatively easy Wulpa Gorge Walk (2.6km; one hour) that takes you between Mount Olga and Mount Wulpa – two of the more imposing rocks. Another popular hike is the Valley of the Winds Walk (7.5km; three hours), which is a circuit taking in the Karingana and Karu lookouts.

    Awesome Scenery. The "Valley of the Winds" track is the best way to discover the Mt Olga. Don't forget water.

    Do go early, it is a hot hell even if you finish by noon. There's only a water tank at each side of the loop start and no shade further on, so take your own water. The second outlook is worth it all.

    Go early and take lots of water, even when it's not over 40deg it feels like it is!
