Red Centre

The spiritual heart of the Australian Outback, it is here that iconic symbols like Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) rise from the endless red sand dunes to stand as monuments to geological time and generations of indigenous belief.

  • Uluru

    Both Uluru and Kata-Tjuta have been sacred to the local Anangu aborigines since time immemorial and figure prominently in their legends about the Dreaming, the time of Creation. These amazing formations were formed 300 million years ago by major geological upheavals and have been moulded by the desert winds ever since.

    aust-red-centre-uluruUluru is the largest monolith (single rock) on earth, standing 1,050 feet above the desert floor. Your first morning in this region simply must start with a sunrise viewing, complete with indigenous interpretation. Take a helicopter flight over the gigantic monolith and dine in the desert, under the stars, with Uluru as your backdrop.

  • Kata-Tjuta

    Kata-Tjuta, which means 'many heads' in the Anangu language, is a spectacular group of 36 massive red rock outcrops separated by narrow valleys. Covering an area of 25 square miles, it is important and sacred under Anangu men's law.

    aust-red-centre-kata-tjutaHighly recommended is the Valley of the Winds walk amongst the domes. This walk is relatively easy allowing you to be totally surrounded by the towering red sandstone bluffs which are so distinctive of this massif. At welcome rest stops, the Karu and Karigana Lookouts provide spectacular panoramas.

  • Kings Canyon

    If time allows, stay a few more days to further explore this remarkable region. Kings Canyon lies between Uluru and Alice Springs and is well worth the effort. The Rim Walk begins with a challenging 500-step climb.

    aust-red-centre-kings-canyonUpon reaching the summit marvel at the breathtaking views of Watarrka National Park and into the canyon itself before descending into the green oasis of the 'Garden of Eden'. The Rim Walk is a strenuous and exposed walk and should take around 3½ hours to complete. Kings Canyon is a 3 hour drive from Uluru.

  • Alice Springs

    Alice Springs, or "The Alice" as the locals call it, is Australia's most famous outback town. A 1 hour flight from Uluru and a 3 ½ hour drive from Kings Canyon, it is a popular stop off in the Red Centre. The township is surrounded by the MacDonnell Ranges, a great base to explore surrounding regions. Alice Springs' desert lifestyle has inspired several unique events, such as the Alice Desert Festival Camel Cup.
