Information

Mount Connor a 700 million-year-old sand and rock tabletop mesa, lies in a straight line with Uluru and the domes of Kata Tjuta. It is part of the same large rock formation that forms all three of these features.

This striking table topped mesa was discovered by surveyor and explorer William Gosse during his unsuccessful attempt to cross from Alice Springs to Perth in 1873. He named the mount after Mr. M. L. Connor, a South Australian member of parliament. The Aboriginal names are Atula or Artilla and are associated with some of the most fearsome of the ancestral beings of aboriginal lore, the ninya or ice men. The Giles Mulga Park Road passes within 7 km of the Mount which is only a third of what the distance is from the Hwy. The view afforded of Mt Conner is much closer than that from the viewing area on the Lassiter Highway,
