Visit a place that is wild and untamed with landscapes as diverse as they come, a place rich in Aboriginal history and rugged natural beauty. From Uluru, the spiritual heart of Australia in the day Red Centre, to the teeming with wildlife wetlands of the Kakadu and Nitmiluk National Park in the Top End.
Situated on a harbour, Darwin is a fascinating tropical city - a melting pot of people and cultures that is friendly and laid back.
The largest National Park in Australia is situated 250km from Darwin. World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, covering more than 19,000 square kilometres, is a landscape of contrasts.
Three hours south of Darwin is Katherine. While its star attraction is undoubtedly the famous Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge), Katherine and its surrounds include great fishing, hidden natural wonders and a rich indigenous and pioneering history.
In the heart of Central Australia is Australia's most famous outback town - Alice Springs. The township is surrounded by the MacDonnell Ranges, a great base to explore surrounding regions. Alice Springs’ desert lifestyle has inspired several unique events, such as the Alice Desert Festival Camel Cup, the Henley-on-Todd Regatta, Beanie Festival and the Finke Desert Race.
Visiting the Outback of Australia is not complete without a stop-off or several night stay in Australia’s “Red Heart,” where rising from the desert floor you’ll find Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock. Standing nearly 348 meters high, most of Uluru’s bulk is hidden deep underground. Sacred to the Anangu Aboriginal peoples indigenous to the region.
