Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, located in Northern Australia is named after two massive sandstone rock formations, “Uluru” and “Kata-Tjuta.” The ancient formations appear to change color depending on the light and time of day and are two of Australia’s most notable landmarks. While Uluru appears to be one solid mass of rock, Kata Tjuta is made up of several large rock formations. At its tallest point, Kata Tjuta towers at 1,791 feet (546 m).


Uluru has cave paintings within its walls that are thought to be at least 5,000 years old. The symbols belong to the Anangu, an Aboriginal community that has lived in the surrounding area for thousands of years. Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
