Australia’s Red Centre

Located in the remote central region of the country, Australia’s Red Centre offers the unforgettable chance to experience Aboriginal culture and witness the breathtaking panoramas of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (Mount Olga). From the friendly settlement of Alice Springs to the outstanding natural features of the MacDonnell Ranges and Kings Canyon, the Red Centre also offers a multitude of unique outdoors experiences. Visitors to the Red Centre can go hiking on the spectacular Larapinta Trail, go camel-riding in the Simpson Desert or drive the remote Red Centre Way through gorges, dunes and waterholes. The region’s unique landscape can also be enjoyed on the epic Ghan train line which runs through the region from Darwin to Adelaide.
