On 15 December 1993, a dual naming policy was adopted that allowed official names consisting of both the traditional Aboriginal name and the English name. As a result, Mount Olga was renamed Mount Olga / Kata Tjuta. On 6 November 2002, following a request from the regional Tourism Association, the order of the dual names was officially reversed to Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga.

    What an amazing landscape Dean. To me living on a little, crowded island seeing this is so different. We have good landscapes but they don’t have the same " feel " of openness as this. Really great. Cheers.Tony.
