Red Centre Highlights

You may know it's sacred to the Aboriginal people here, and that it turns some spectacular colours at sunrise and sunset. You might not know that you can experience it through Aboriginal eyes, or that there are many other sacred and breathtaking sites here in Australia's vast centre. Uluṟu's cousin Kata Tjuṯa is just 40 kilometres away and you'll find the awe-inspiring Kings Canyon not far from Alice Springs. You might not realise that this landscape has green vegetation and lush waterholes as well as dusty red roads and huge slabs of rock. And what you won't really understand until you get here is the magic, majesty, silence and splendid isolation of Australia's Red Centre.

Native wildlife to spot includes spinifex pigeons, rock-wallabies, euros, goannas and pythons. The Giles Track is named after the first European to explore the George Gill Range in 1872.
