Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park — 3 nights

Please note that visitors are no longer allowed to trek up Uluru.

Located right in the center of Australia, the national park boasts perhaps the country's most iconic natural symbol and a sacred place for the region's indigenous people--as well as Kata Tjuta, a collection of 36 red rocks forming an equally distinctive sight.
Attractions like Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga and Mala Walk make great kid-friendly stops. And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic natural features at Uluru, get all the information you need at Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, hike along Kuniya Walk, and take in the pleasant sights at Field of Light.

There's much more to do: stroll through Alice Springs Desert Park, see the interesting displays at Royal Flying Doctor Service Museum, take an exotic tour of Wayoutback Australian Safaris, and deepen your understanding at Alice Springs School of the Air Experience.

Red Centre travel guide

Geologic Formations · Nature & Parks · Mountains
A dusty, arid land of canyons, cliffs, and mountains, the Red Center’s rock monoliths and rich colors make it one of the most evocative locations in Australia. Most notable as the home of Alice Springs and Ayers Rock, Red Center also has a strong connection with the Aboriginal community and indigenous culture.
