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: take in the dramatic natural features at Uluru, admire the verdant scenery at Valley of the Winds, get your bearings at Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, and take in the awesome beauty at Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga.
