Central Australia is the heart of the Outback, where rich red earth gives way to ancient iconic land formations under radiant blue skies. The cultural heritage of the Aboriginal people weaves a spiritual web of dreamtime stories dating back to the beginning of creation.

Using Alice Springs as a hub, visitors can access Central Australia’s outback via The Ghan train journey, and a number of small group operators create interesting itineraries that explore the more remote areas of this region in style and comfort. Explore Australia’s most iconic Outback town, or meander through the Aboriginal and contemporary art galleries.

SEIT Outback Australia and Wayoutback Desert Safaris offer small group tours along the majestic ridges of the West MacDonnell Ranges. Discover the many surprises of the central Australian deserts – oases of palm trees, steep red gorges and sparkling swimming holes.

Take a scenic sunset flight over Kings Canyon at sunset or climb it in the cool of sunrise before discovering the pleasures of rock pools in the Garden of Eden. Your Central Australian Outback Journey builds to a crescendo as you reach Longitude 131. Relax in your eco tent overlooking Uluru before heading out on a tailored touring program that will expose you to the true essence of this special place.
