Uluru: reasons to visit Australia's Red Centre

Natural Beauty Symbol 2 created by Rachael Sarra, inspired by her Goreng Goreng heritage

Local culture

While the scenery of the Red Centre is beautiful, the people are even more inspiring. Anangu elders Reggie and Cassidy Uluru have an active role protecting and promoting Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, and share their vast cultural knowledge with visitors.
