    Make sure you see the domes at dawn and dusk. Before the heat of the day sets in is a beautiful time to watch the rocks, as the sun lights them in an array of changing colour. Similarly at dusk, the Kata Tjuta put on another light show all of their own as the sunlight fades.

    The Australian seasons, spring and autumn, are the most popular time of year to visit Kata Tjuta as the temperatures are more tolerable. In the Australian summer, temperatures in this part of the world can average a maximum of 35 degrees Celsius during the day. Always carry spare water in the Australian outback.

    What are the best things to see and do at the Olga’s (Kata Tjuta)?

    Walks
    There are many walks at Kata Tjuta including the 7.4km Valley of the Winds loop and the 2.6km Walpa Gorge walk.

    The alternative name for Kata Tjuta, ‘The Olgas’, comes from the tallest peak, Mt. Olga. The domes are very steep and mostly you will be able to walk amongst the domes and enjoy what nature has to offer.

    Valley of the Winds walk
    This is the major walk around the Olgas and people rate it highly. It’s a total of about 7.4km but quite steep in parts and takes about 4 hours. A reasonable fitness level is required to do this walk.

    On the way you’ll see rare plants that thrive in little microclimates amongst the rocks and also a grove of spearwood. Traditional owners used to make spears from this, eat its flowers and use its gum. There are two lookouts and the views are breathtaking. One of the nicest things about this walk is the solitude, where you will be able to really take in the spirit of this amazing place.

    Walpa Gorge walk
    If you want a shorter and easier walk than the Valley of the Winds, then Walpa Gorge is a great alternative. The walk is very beautiful and is only 2.6km return and takes approximately 1 hour .

    Uluru Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre
    Gain an understanding of the spiritual significance of the Kata Tjuta to traditional owners and see how the land furnished them with food, fuel, weapons and medicines. Learn how women and children collected bush superfoods like desert raisins, bush plums and native figs, and how men used spear throwers to hunt goanna and red kangaroos.
