We visited Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park while travelling through the Northern Territory on our caravan adventure. It was a really wonderful experience to be able to see these amazing formations up close and explore the walking trails provided for visitors in this World Heritage Area of central Australia.

Uluru (Ayers Rock) has been on our wish list for years and it is hard to fathom how huge this rock actually is - they say that Uluru could also extend under the earth for 1 - 5 kilometres. Viewing areas have been created within the National Park to enable visitors to see the rock at various times of the day as it seems to change colour depending on the amount of light hitting the surface at different times of the day. Sunrise and Sunset viewings are particularly popular.

Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) should also be on your bucket list. Kata Tjuta means 'many heads' in the local language and it is said that the highest rock is about 500 metres above the surface. The National Park has also provided a number of viewing areas to see this formation which is about 50 kilometres from the Park entrance. 

A fee for entry into Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park can be paid at the Park Entry Station and maps are available to show the walks provided at each location. Note that there are culturally sensitive areas around Uluru where you asked not to take photos. The cultural centre within the National Park is a must see in order to learn about the use of the land and its significance to the local indigenous community.
