"Kata Tjuta - The Olgas" Uluru National Park (Ayers Rock) Things to Do Tip by Myndo

  the Olgas
by Myndo
 
 

The Olgas are located 42 km east of the Ayers Rock. Uluru (Ayers Rock) can be seen from there.

The Olgas consist of 27 round sand stone Domes.
The Aboriginal name for them is Kata Tjuta, meaning "many heads".

The biggest one, Mount Olga is 546 m high, wich is 200 m higher than Uluru.


You can walk around and through them and soak in the special atmosphere.
Just make sure to take enough water with you. It can get bloody hot!

There are two major walking trails, namely The Valley of the Winds and The Olga Gorge
The former takes about three hours and leads you to several deep gorges. The latter leads up to the beautiful Olga Gorge and to its deadened cliff face and a rock pool.

Directions: The Olgas are located 42 km east of the Ayers Rock.
