Yulara, 443 kilometres, 276.9 miles southwest of Alice Springs, is the access township for Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
Kata Tjuta actually means 'many heads' in traditional Aboriginal language. The Olgas are about 30km from Uluru and is made up of 36 rounded domes with the tallest being 200m higher than Uluru, that's 546m.
The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park gained World Heritage status in 1987.
The Anangu have formed a partnership with Parks Australia to manage Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The Uluru Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre is a must stop before you encounter Uluru at close range.
Anangu guides at the park share appropriate ancient stories with visitors during cultural tours around the base of Uluru.
