Getting to Kata Tjuta The Olgas
Fly into Uluru Ayers Rock, taking about 3 hours from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane. If you rent a car at Uluru Ayers Rock, you can drive yourself easily to Kata Tjuta The Olgas, though a local guide on a guided tour will add a lot of local knowledge.
Kata Tjuta The Olgas is about 365 kms (227 mi) south and west of Alice Springs, so it cannot really be visited in a day trip from there.
Kata Tjuta The Olgas Australian Travel Map
Kata Tjuta The Olgas: The rounded, red domes of Kata Tjuta The Olgas stick out of the desert. They are not as high as Uluru Ayers Rock, but they have their own beauty – a series of smaller domes, rather than a huge monolith. Compare the Kata Tjuta The Olgas Australian Travel Map with the photos.
Valley of the Winds: The picture below shows the walking trail up into a section between two of the domes known as the Valley of the Winds. The mysterious sighing of the wind through the rocks gives it the name.
Religious Significance to the Aboriginal People: While Kata Tjuta The Olgas has great religious significance to the local Aboriginal People, the information is only available to initiated tribal members. Very little is known about the details, apart from the fact that Kata Tjuta The Olgas is important.
