Australia in 8D: Red
Find your own moment of escape
Red evokes energy and excitement. It stimulates, motivates, propels. In Australia, red is at the heart of our country, from our deep crimson skies to the expansive rusty red outback. This vivid colour inspires you to take the path less travelled, and calls to adventurers wanting to escape the confines of everyday life. Here’s how to seize Australian experiences that’ll make your heart beat faster.
Connect with culture and ochre earth in Australia’s Red Centre
The fiery red hues of Australia’s Red Centre are unique, and call to adventurers wanting to discover the passionate heart of the country. Arguably, there's no better place to experience this than at Uluru. For many, visiting this magnificent sight in Australia’s spiritual centre can spark a renewed sense of connection with the land we so often take for granted. The sight of this immense red stone rising from the surrounding landscape is profoundly reinvigorating.
Stand in awe of ancient red rocks
Red-hued adventures are waiting in Western Australia’s Kimberley region, where rocks that are 2 billion years old – forming islands, gorges and ranges – are dressed in dramatic shades of rust and cinnamon. Admire them while speedboating at full throttle through the jagged gaps forming the Horizontal Falls, a unique natural phenomenon that sees staggering volumes of water flush through the rocks at high speed.
Stimulate your senses under a glowing sunset
To witness the rainbow of reds in an Australian sunset is to be re-energised for another day of adventure. At Cable Beach, in the outback town of Broome, ruby-coloured skies are mirrored in the wet, pancake-flat sand at the end of each day. Feel the energy electrify your senses as you watch the fiery hues beautifully paint the entire landscape. Such a sight would be a powerful experience on its own, but in Broome there’s more.
