Kata Tjuta (Mount Olga) - Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Kata Tjuta (Mount Olga)' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Northern Territory.
Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park features spectacular geological formations that dominate the vast red sandy plain of central Australia. Uluru, an immense monolith, and Kata Tjuta, the rock domes located west of Uluru, form part of the traditional belief system of one of the oldest human societies in the world. The traditional owners of Uluru-Kata Tjuta are the Anangu Aboriginal people. Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park is one of the few World Heritage properties listed for both its natural and cultural values.
Uluru used to be known as 'Ayers Rock' and is one of the most famous landmarks in Australia and a principle tourist attraction in the Northern Territory. Uluru's popularity has caused some protest from the Aboriginal peoples as Uluru is considered a sacred site. The word 'Uluru' has no specific meaning or translation, unlike Kata Tjuta, which translates as 'many heads'.
