Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park is a protected area in the Northern Territory of Australia. The park is home to both Uluru and Kata Tjuta. It is located 1,943 kilometres (1,207Mi) south of Darwin by road and 440 kilometres (274Mi) south west of Alice Springs along the Stuart and Lasseter Highways. These domed rock formations 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. Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park flora represents a large portion of plants found in Central Australia. A number of these species are considered rare and restricted in the park or the immediate region. The Aboriginal community of Mutitjulu, with a population of approximately 300 reside inside the park area, located near the eastern end of Uluru.
