The imagery seen here was shot on the grounds of Kata Tjuta in
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. The park covers an expanse 1326 square
kilometres and is located 440 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs, in
Australia's central region.
At certain points on the premises of Kata Tjuta you can see Uluru in the
distance, and getting between the two is about about an hour drive (50
kilometers). The highest point of the thirty-six domes that make up Kata
Tjuta is named Mt. Olga, and is actually taller than Uluru.
The area of the Kata Tjuta rock formations covers an area of about 22
Kilometers squared. The rock features are composed of conglomerate, a
sedimentary rock consisting of cobbles and boulders of varying rock
types including granite and basalt, cemented by a matrix of sandstone.
Here in the Outback temperature extremes have been recorded at 45
degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit) during summer days and negative
5 degrees Celsius (23 degrees Fahrenheit) during winter nights. The
barren like landscape may seem to be moderately desolate, but there is a
thriving ecosystem here. There is believed to be over 20 different
mammal species living here in the park, and you can commonly find wild
wallabies hopping to and fro if you're at the right spot at the right

the provided trail areas. Please give great care to this consecrated
