About Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park covers 1,326 square kilometers and is home to two of the world’s most iconic rock formations: Kata Tjuta, known also as The Olgas, and its 36 domed heads, Kata Tjuta is the Aboriginal name, which means “many heads’. And Uluru, sometimes called Ayers Rock, one of the largest monoliths in the world. Made of arkosic sandstone, Uluru rises 348 meters above the desert floor (higher than the Eiffel Tower) and has a circumference of 9.4 kilometers.

The origins of Uluru and Kata Tjuta date back about 500 million years, to around the same time the Australian continent was formed. You’ll find Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park about 450 kilometers, or a four and a half hour drive southwest of Alice Springs, the nearest major town.

Uluru and Kata Tjuta still have significant meaning to Aboriginal people, they both form an important focus of their spiritual life. Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park is Aboriginal land. The park is jointly managed by its Anangu traditional owners and Parks Australia. The park is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Area for both its natural and cultural values.
