Get ready to be blown away by World Heritage-listed natural wonders, iconic wildlife and the red dirt of the Australian Outback. The Uluru region is home to two of Australia's most famous rock formations, a mighty canyon and an ancient indigenous culture rich in story, dance and art.
Wake at dawn and witness the magic of desert landscapes and monolithic rocks absorbing colours that will bring you to a standstill. Learn the ways of the Anangu people, the traditional owners of Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park, and gain an understanding of the relationship between Aboriginal culture and the land they call home.
One of the great natural wonders of the world, Uluru (Ayers Rock) towers above the surrounding desert landscape. Visit at sunrise or sunset for the spectacular sight of this 348-metre high monolith transforming from ochre to burnished orange and intense red in the changing light. To appreciate the size of the world's largest monolith, circumnavigate the 10.6 kilometre base on foot and see tranquil waterholes, shady Sheoak trees and rock art in shallow caves. Or follow a short or wheelchair accessible trail from one of the car parks. Uluru is a sacred site and the local Aboriginal people ask that you don't embark on the risky climb to the top.
Watarrka National Park is best known as the home of Kings Canyon – sheer red rock faces that soar above dense forests of palms, and shelter plants and native animals. Take your time to explore the Canyon and the surrounding George Gill Range. Kings Canyon is located about 300 km north east of Uluru and 450 km south west of Alice Springs. As the name suggests, it is a majestic destination with 100 m-high sandstone walls, walking trails, palm-filled crevices and views across the desert.
