Hear fascinating stories of the geology, history and culture of Kata Tjuta. This incredible formation of rock domes extends 6 kilometres into the ground and is the remains of erosion that began more than 500 million years ago. The walk to Valley of the Winds takes you down into a timeless haven within the domes through trickling creek beds.

Uluru (Ayers Rock) Kata Tjuta Sunrise & Valley of the Winds Half Day Tour

 

Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)

A 45 minute drive west of Uluṟu (Ayers Rock) is Kata Tjuṯa (the Olgas), a must see geological marvel and one of the two main features in Uluṟu - Kata Tjuṯa National Park.

Unlike the single stone mass that makes up Uluṟu, Kata Tjuṯa is made up of 36 imposing domed rock formations, aptly named 'many heads' in the local Aṉangu language. The alternative name, the Olgas, comes from the tallest peak Mt. Olga which was named after Queen Olga of Württemberg in 1872. This tallest peak stands at a towering 1066 metres above sea level.

For those with a good level of fitness the Valley of the Winds is a longer walk that takes you through several domes and delivers breathtaking views. Whichever trail you choose, you'll be amazed by the plants and animals that have survived the harsh Australian desert and be rewarded with a view of the outback like you've never seen before.
