With swathes of burning reds that sting your eyes and stir your heart, the Northern Territory is Australia’s wildest, most impenetrable, most legendary land. At the heart of Australia’s outback, the Red Centre region encompasses Alice Springs, the East and West MacDonnell Ranges, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, and Kings Canyon.
Activities in the area take the form of bushwalks, camel riding, quad bike riding and scenic flight tours. Visit the Uluru Cultural Centre to learn about Aboriginal art and culture – and of course Australia’s world famous Uluru (Ayers Rock): best viewed at sunrise or sunset as the rock changes colour with the light. The area is of deep cultural significance to the Aboriginal people who gave the name Uluru to the rock and the surrounding national park.
