A red paradise
Home to the World Heritage-listed natural icons Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Australia’s Red Centre is a vast outback wilderness characterised by endless horizons of rolling red sand dunes, green Desert Oaks and great domes of blue sky. Uluru lies around 60km west of Kata Tjuta and 470km south west of Alice Springs. Kata Tjuta is a mysterious gathering of 36 rock domes and both landmarks are culturally significant to the Indigenous Anangu people.
