Please note that visitors are no longer allowed to trek up Uluru.

Located right in the center of Australia, the national park boasts perhaps the country's most iconic natural symbol and a sacred place for the region's indigenous people--as well as Kata Tjuta, a collection of 36 red rocks forming an equally distinctive sight.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is known for nature, museums, and outdoors. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the striking landscape at Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga, take in the pleasant sights at Lungkata Walk, hike along Kuniya Walk, and get advice or help at Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre.
