AAT Kings - Kata Tjuta Tours

BOOK

from $105 per person

Your experienced driver guide will give you a historical overview of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park as we travel 40 kilometres to the west of the iconic Uluru, to take in the sites of Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas.

Kata Tjuta simply translated means ‘heads many’ for its 36 steep-sided domes. This incredible formation of rock domes extends six kilometres into the ground and is the remains of erosion that began more than 500 million years ago. The area is sacred under Anangu men’s law and under this law, details of many stories of Kata Tjuta are not known except to initiated men.

When you stop at a viewing platform that boasts the most spectacular views of Kata Tjuta, be sure to have your camera at the ready.

Tours take in either Walpa Gorge, a gentle but rocky track that leads you into a world of rare plant species and lush evergreen shrubs known as Spearwood, or the spectacular Valley of the Winds. This walk can be a little challenging, but well worth it. It takes you down into a timeless haven within the domes through trickling creek beds. At times of extreme heat the walk may not be available, but will be substituted with an alternative walk.

AAT Kings is a premier coach tour holiday operator, with a long history in providing quality touring experiences, which can be traced back to 1925.

Mani-Mani Theatre Company’s unique sound, lighting, 3D effects and performance take you on a visually captivating experience transporting you to the ancient lands of Central Australia where the story of Walawuru, Kakalyalya & Kaanka unravels. The symbolic story of Walawuru, Kakalyalya & Kaanka is a tale of love, jealousy and greed. Expressed through ‘Mani-Mani’, the local art form of storytelling, this contemporary Indigenous performance brings to life the ancient ancestral beings Walawuru the Wedge-Tailed Eagle and his two wives; Kaanka the black crow and Kakalyalya the white cockatoo. Walawuru is happy with his two wives but little does he know Kaanka is evil and very jealous of the kind and caring Kakalyalya. The word ‘Mani-Mani’ comes from the Yankunytjatjara & Pitjantjatjara language of the Anangu people of Central Australia. Anangu people would often tell stories by drawing symbols in the sand using a stick taken from a branch of the Mani-Mani tree. The stories were often about ancestors, real events in history and the Tjukurpa creation time.
