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.
