Tourism Central Australia

The Red Centre is different. Out there it is a bit, ‘out there’. In a good way. In a more interesting way. Because let’s face it, who wants just the same old boring stuff on holidays? When you get to the Red Centre, you’ll feel like you’ve arrived in a different country, on a different planet even. A place where you will find the desert bursting to life.

Alice Springs is the jumping off point – your base camp for adventure. From Alice you can connect with all the Red Centre has to offer. Hit the MacDonnell Ranges to the west, or to the east. Hike ridges and explore gorges. Jump into some secret waterholes, or maybe into some art – but why just look? Here you’ll be able to get some paint under your fingernails at an art class too.

Get your heart racing on the Larapinta Trail or a 4WD adventure in Palm Valley. Learn about ancient culture and unique nature from a local ranger at Uluru, Kata-Tjuta or Kings Canyon. Find peace in a hot air balloon, or just in a swag under the desert sky where you can count the shooting stars and your lucky ones.

Connect with Uluru and take in its awe-inspiring beauty and cultural significance from a bike, Segway, motorbike tour, scenic flight or even from a camel’s back.

You’ll leave feeling positively different in yourself. The kind of different you can only feel when you get ‘out there’, in the Red Centre.
