Kata Tjuta National Park


A World Heritage Area recognised for both its natural values and cultural values

Background

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is internationally recognised for its spectacular geological formations, rare plants and animals and exceptional natural beauty. Importantly, it is Aboriginal Land and is internationally acclaimed for its cultural landscape.

A very popular tourist destination, the park is located in a desert and receives an average rainfall of around 300 millimetres per year. Temperatures range from up to 45°C during the summer and -5 °C during winter.

Challenge

The park needed toilet facilities that would cope with the extreme temperatures as well as the peaks and troughs in visitor numbers. Importantly, the cultural significance of the area and its fragile environment called for toilets that would leave a minimal footprint on the land.

Solution

14 standard and 2 disabled toilets with four CM40 tanks were installed at the visitor centre in 2009.
