Uluru & the Red Centre

Discover Uluru & the Red Centre of Australia

Discover the Red Centre of Australia and the Northern Territory and visit the natural wonders of Uluru or Kata Tjuta and hike around the base. Most people know about the scarlet monolith that dominates Australia’s heart – yet sadly, many don’t spend enough time in the Red Centre, discovering the region’s surprisingly rich wildlife and Uluru’s less famous, yet equally impressive geological cousins.

Apart from seeing sunrise and sunset over the sacred rock, the majority of visitors aren’t aware that there are myriad ways to experience Uluru – view it from a motorcycle, helicopter or on camelback, walk around its folds with a local Anangu guide and learn the mythology surrounding its creation. Let the great silence and isolation of its arid surrounds sink in, as you dine beneath a billion stars.

Furthermore, few realise that there are a range of breathtaking sights close by – from gorgeous Kings Canyon and Watarrka National Park to the 36 giant sentient stones – Kata Tjuta – just 40 or so kilometres away from Uluru. Another little known fact: the Red Centre is not all lifeless desert. From the rim of Kings Canyon, you’ll see lush palm groves and glistening waterholes below. Also, 178 birds and 73 reptiles have been recorded in the region, including the fascinating thorny devil.
