Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park ©
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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Kuniya Walk and Mutitjulu Waterhole. There's much more to do: head outdoors with Walpa Gorge, browse the exhibits of Walkatjara Art, take in the awesome beauty at Kata Tjuta, and admire all the interesting features of Uluru.

To find reviews, photos, maps, and tourist information, go to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park sightseeing planning site .

Jakarta, Indonesia to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is an approximately 15-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight.
