Natural attractionsUluru (Ayers Rock) & Kata Tjuta (Olgas) natural attractions

Uluru (Ayers Rock)

This truly spectacular rock, known as Uluru (Ayers Rocks) is Australia's most recognisable natural icon. The famous sandstone monolith is much bigger than it looks in photos. It stands at 348 metres high and is 3.6 km long and is over 500 million years old. Most of the rock is actually below the surface.

Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)

Approximately 30km to the west of Ulura (Ayres Rock) is Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), which are 36 undulating domes scattered over an area larger than Ayres Rock. The Aboriginal term means many heads. The Olgas are just as impressive as Uluru (Ayres Rock) for their sheer size, formation and beauty.

Mount Conner

Mount Connor is a 700 million year old sand and rock table top mountain, or mesa, which is located directly west of Uluru. Like Uluru it stands alone, towering up out of the desert. In terms of size it is said to be three times larger than Uluru. As it is on private property, you can only get views of it from a lookout just 11 km east of Curtin Springs along the Lasseter Highway. If you would like to see it closer, you can do a tour with SEIT Outback Australia Tours.

Located 100Km east of Uluru.
