Discover the Red Centre within a three-hour flight from the east and south coast cities of Australia – choose to easily connect to Alice Springs or fly to Ayers Rock Airport, located next to the dual-listed World Heritage site of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

Alice Springs is your basecamp for adventure: dotted with wild waterholes for swimming, world-class biking and hiking trails, historic sites to explore and native wildlife experiences – all within easy access of the town that homes an impressive range of accommodation options.

Every visitor to Uluru (Ayers Rock) will attest that pictures just don’t do it justice. It’s a region full of ancient culture and majestic natural wonders including Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), which neighbours Uluru and Kings Canyon and can be reached within a few hours' drive.

Watarrka National Park is a three hours’ drive from Uluru, and home to the mighty Kings Canyon – an impressive natural formation of towering 300m high sandstone walls matched with a palm-filled oasis and impressive views that stretch across the Red Centre.
