5 must-dos on your 4WD adventure to Uluru


It’s no secret that Uluru and Kata Tjuta are amazing feats of nature. But for a journey that’s as good as the destination, be sure to check out these highlights off the beaten track along the Red Centre Way...

Palm Valley

4WD only

Palm Valley, known as Australia’s own Jurassic Park is a jaw dropping camping spot accessible by 4WD and well worth a stop. The origin of the Red Cabbage palms among the rock faces has fuelled urban legends for decades.


Redbank Gorge

Unsealed road. High clearance vehicle recommended

Who needs water parks when you’ve got Redbank Gorge? We hope you’ve packed your swimming gear, because you won’t want to miss a cool dip among scenery that’s out-of-this-world.


Tnorala (Gosse Bluff)

4WD only

Climb into a 142.5 million-year-old comet impact site. About 5km in diameter, Tnorala (Gosse Bluff) is a place of special significance to its traditional owners. According to Aboriginal belief, Tnorala was formed in the creation time, when a group of women danced as stars in the Milky Way.


Rainbow Valley

4WD recommended

Be sure to check out the sandstone bluffs and cliffs of Rainbow Valley at dawn or dusk, when the rainbow-like rock bands are at their finest.


Erldunda Roadhouse

2WD or 4WD

Say g’day to some feathered and furry friends! With an emu farm and kangaroo enclosure, Erldunda Roadhouse is the perfect stop for some happy snaps and to get a quick bite to eat.
