About Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park covers 1,326 square kilometers of land and is home to two of the world’s most iconic rock formations:Uluru, the largest monolith in the world also known as Ayers Rock, and Kata Tjuta, whose Aboriginal name means ‘Many Heads’ referring to its 36 domed rock formations.
Made of arkosic sandstone, Uluru rises 348 meters above the desert floor (higher than the Eiffel Tower) and has a circumference of 9.4 kilometers. The origins of Uluru and Kata Tjuta date back to about 500 million years ago, around the same time the Australian continent was formed.
Both rock formations still have significant meaning to Aboriginal people, representing an important focus for their spiritual life. Uluru is a sacred site and the Anangu people (its original owners) ask visitors to respect their culture by not climbing the rock. The park is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Area for both its natural and cultural values.
