Mappa del Red Centre australiano

Be honest. A trip to the Red Centre is on your bucket list, but you’re still not quite sure when you’ll go... Go now!

Do the Red Centre – a holiday in the heart

The Red Centre is around a three hour flight from the east and south coast, allowing you to explore the different regions that make up the heart of Australia in a weekend or a week.

Every visitor to Uluru (Ayers Rock) will attest that pictures just don’t do it justice. It’s a region full of majesty and other natural wonders, with Kata Tjuta (the Olgas)' neighbouring Uluru and Kings Canyon a few hours’ drive away.

Alice Springs epitomises the Australian outback character, with some unexpected surprises. It’s your basecamp for adventure, with waterholes, biking and hiking trails, historic and wildlife centres and four-wheel driving all within easy access.

Nature is your playground just a half-day drive from Alice Springs at the Devils Marbles (Karlu Karlu), south of Tennant Creek. The town of Tennant Creek offers travellers history, arts and outback experiences and is a natural stop as you drive the Explorer’s Way.

Do Alice

The city at the centre of Australia, Alice Springs, is a place that oozes character, colourful outback culture and breathtaking scenery. At just over a 3 hour flight from most capital cities, Alice Springs is your basecamp to new adventures.

It's a thriving, spirited outback centre with a population of 30,000. The climate is warm, the air is pure and the pace is relaxed. Alice is a town that you can visit either on your way to the Red Centre's outback icons, or enjoy for its own unique charm.

Adventure in Alice

Adventure is never far off. The East and West MacDonnell Ranges surround Alice Springs and provide a playground of adventure with hiking trails, four-wheel drive tracks, swimming holes and camping spots. Hot air balloon rides over the MacDonnell Ranges offer a truly unique experience to take in the sunrise over the rugged ranges.

There is an almost boundless range of activities including quad biking, camel trekking, camping and scenic flights for the thrill seekers. Or hit the trails with some fun and speedy mountain bike riding on the extensive network of tracks around the town.

For an adventure of another kind, take on the challenge of the Alice Springs Golf Club, one of the world’s finest desert courses set in the foothills of the majestic MacDonnell Ranges.

Tours frequently leave for other wonders such as Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), Uluru, Kings Canyon, Finke Gorge, Ormiston Gorge and Pound and Rainbow Valley.

Do Uluru

Few people who tour Uluru return unchanged. When you arrive at the rock, it's easy to see why it has such a huge spiritual significance for the Anangu Aboriginal people, and why it is considered the spiritual heart of Australia.

You’ll first be struck by the wonder of Uluru as you fly over it. Just a 10 minute drive from the airport, you’ll find a wide range of accommodation - from backpacker to eco-sensitive luxury, there are options to satisfy any traveller.

As well as the iconic Uluru, this region offers other great experiences, such as the ancient dome-shaped formations of Kata Tjuta, the spectacular sheer red rock cliffs of Kings Canyon and a taste of life on real outback stations.

Adventure in Uluru

If you’re looking for adventure, you’ll find lots to do in the land around Uluru! Meander through the changing colours of the Uluru and Kata Tjuta landscapes on the back of a camel at sunrise or sunset. Feel the exhilaration and freedom of seeing Uluru from a late model Harley Davidson. For a real bird’s eye view, you can explore the amazing landscapes of Uluru, Kata Tjuta or Kings Canyon on a fixed wing or helicopter scenic flight adventure.

Head off-road on a quad biking adventure through the dunes around Kings Creek Station, hike the trails around Kings Canyon or do the Kings Canyon Rim walk.

#Uluru has been hit with some wild weather recently, including a supercell that passed right over it! It's estimated that only 1% of travellers to this legendary monolith get to see it when it rains, and the rock is enveloped in waterfalls 💦 Check out our IG story for more!

Welcome to Little Bondi - one of #EastArnhemLand's many hidden gems. The north-eastern corner of the NT is home to numerous stretches of white sand bordered by the vivid blue waters of the Arafura Sea and Gulf of Carpentaria. There are several stunning beaches within a relatively short driving distance from Nhulunbuy (Gove), the region's main township, where travellers can spend their days fishing, camping and exploring the diverse landscape. Not far from Little Bondi (Baringura), you'll also find Turtle Beach (Ngumuy) and Macassan Beach (Garanhan). Make sure you look into travel permits with the Northern Land Council or the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation before your trip 👍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @_markfitz! #SeeAustralia

We've got tickets for a billion-star experience, keen?! An easy day trip from #AliceSprings, Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve is renowned for its sandstone bluffs and cliffs with different bands of coloured rock. Best accessed by a four-wheel drive vehicle, this lesser known geological wonder is particularly stunning in the early morning light or late afternoon sun when it changes from ochre red to orange and purple. However, if you're staying overnight in the campground, make sure you stick your head out of the tent during the night - with no artificial light nearby, you'll be able to see the stars like never before ✨ Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @carmenhuter! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Come for the swimming, stay for the photo opportunities 👌 There’s nothing better than relaxing in a natural spa, and they don’t come much better than the free hot springs in the town of #Katherine. Crystal clear and luke warm, surrounded by lush pandanus and monsoon forest, the pools are a favourite spot for locals and travellers.  Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @prends_tes_tongs_on_se_casse! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

As darkness falls and #Uluru is thrown into silhouette, the #FieldofLight illuminates ✨ The exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara, is Bruce Munro's largest work to date, with more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres. The installation covers an area of more than seven football fields and invites visitors to wander through the network of pathways and watch this fantasy garden softly change colour from sunset to sunrise. The Field of Light is running until 31 December, 2020. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @aroundq! #SeeAustralia #ExploreUluru #RedCentreNT

Witness the magic of #Kakadu National Park from above 🚁 From this spectacular vantage point you’ll see the most astonishing side of @Australia's largest national park... ancient sandstone plateaus, sheer escarpments, endless savannah forest, white sand beaches, winding rivers and expanses of floodplains. One of Kakadu's most impressive waterfalls, Twin Falls is a sight to behold year round whether it's in full flow or reduced to a trickle during the drier months. With the wet season fast approaching and ground access soon closing, a scenic flight is a must over the summer months - the mighty rock formations and surging water make for unforgettable viewing! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jewelszee! #SeeAustralia #SeeKakadu #DoKakadu

Just a hop, skip and a jump from #AliceSprings, you'll find our outback version of a 'beach' - Ormiston Gorge! Out of all the gaps and gorges in the West MacDonnell Ranges, it has to be one of the most impressive 😍Comprised of orange and red quartzite, and formed by massive geological forces, it's not your typical swimming spot... but that's what makes it so special! With summer fast approaching, we'll be grabbing a picnic rug and our bathers and heading here - you can even pick up a coffee from the kiosk. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @savvy_social.  #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Going, going... gone! #Uluru was hit by a passing storm yesterday arvo - at one point the rain was so heavy it almost disappeared from sight! Ten minutes later the clouds cleared... just in time for #sunset 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @yo_hisa0425! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

If you're a big fan of waterfalls like us, a visit to #Litchfield National Park is definitely a must! Fed by twin falls and fringed by shady trees, Florence Falls ranks as one of the park's front runners, particularly as it's swimmable almost year round. Reaching the fall's glistening jade-green swimming hole is half the appeal 👉 the walk is short, easy and showcases the dramatic contrast between mighty sandstone escarpment and lush monsoon forest. An easy day trip from #Darwin, Litchfield may be a fraction of the size of Kakadu, but when it comes to swimming opportunities it packs a serious punch 👌💦 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @cbowles14!  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd
