Mount Conner is a flat-topped and horseshoe-shaped inselberg/mesa, part of the same vast rocky substrate thought to be beneath Uluru/Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta/Olgas. It can easily be confused with Uluru, since it can be seen from the road to Uluru and Kata Tjuta, when approaching from Alice Springs. It was named Mount Conner by William Gosse in 1873 after South Australian politician M. L. Conner. Attila is close to the site of Kungkarangkalpa, the Seven Sisters Dreaming.
The flat-topped mountain mass jutting out from the great flat plain around it has inspired many artists and photographers, each immortalising its characteristic shape in their own way. The last image is a watercolour by Albert Namatjira, the Australian Aboriginal artist active in the first half of the 20th century.
