Luxury Red Centre & Alice Springs Holiday Packages
The outback is synonymous with Australia’s image as a sunburnt land. The ochre hues and fiery sunrises of Uluru in the Red Centre is one of the most amazing natural shows you’ll ever see, and you can also catch the encore in reverse every dusk at sunset. Take a guided walk around the base of the majestic rock and transport yourself back to the Dreamtime and folklore of the Anangu culture.
Alice Springs, Australia’s most famous outback town widely considered to be the spiritual heart of Australia. Alice is as famous for its contemporary and traditional art as it is for natural wonders, such as the Larapinta Trail and MacDonnell Ranges, which surround the town. Here, you can immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture, pioneer sites and stay on cattle stations or in luxury retreats.
While Uluru may be the main drawcard of the Red Centre, also located in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park are the dramatic rock domes of Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas. Three hours from Uluru is Watarrka National Park, the carved sandstone cliffs of Kings Canyon and the desert views into the sheer chasm will astound you. The Rim Walk offers up hidden areas like ‘The Lost City’ and ‘Garden of Eden’ – Aztec-like formations and secret oasis waterholes – amid prehistoric ferns and tiny trees for the intrepid trekker.
