Red Centre: Uluru, Kata Tjuta & Alice Springs

Visit the Red Centre

Introduction

A trip to Australia's Red Centre offers a vast window into the iconic Outback experience. It is majestic, silent and splendidly isolated. Iconic Uluru and the monumental Olgas, both sacred to the local aboriginal people, are the Red Centre's most recognisable landmarks, while the famous outback town of Alice Springs and the gorges and waterholes around King's Canyon are also a magnet for visitors.

The Red Centre’s semi-arid climate is one of extremes. In summer (December to February), temperatures range between 20ºC and 35ºC and flies are an almost constant nuisance. Spring and autumn are pleasant, while in winter (June to August), night time temperatures can sometimes fall below freezing. Rain, when it comes, arrives in heavy bursts, but you can expect dry conditions throughout most of the year. Wildflower season reaches its peak between September and October.
