Red Centre: Alice Springs to Uluru
Get ready for adventure on this 8 day self-drive holiday from Alice Springs to the great Australian outback. “Alice” as known by locals, is the gateway to the Red Centre and exactly halfway between Darwin and Adelaide. Enjoy time learning about its unique and ancient history and marvel at the unique red sandstone and otherworldly landscapes as you venture out of town into the outback. Enjoy one of the best road trips Australia has to offer as you visit the McDonnell Ranges, Glen Helen Gorge and the Kings Canyon Watarrka National Park – home to the indigenous Aboriginal people for 20,000 years. Spend two days exploring Uluru, the icon of Australia, and nearby Kata Tjutu and learn about their important cultural significance. A highlight of your stay will be an evening dinner at the critically acclaimed Field of Light exhibition by Bruce Munro, a huge light installation covering more than seven football fields.
