Red Centre goes green

Article content

19 April 2010

According to Tourism Australia the area around Alice Springs has received more rain in the first two months of the year than it did for the whole of 2009 and as a result many plants and grasses are coming up which haven’t been around for a long time.

Local tourism operator Shane Fewtrell of Trek Larapinta, said a journey to Australia’s Red Centre now would yield additional rewards as the usual red chasms and ochre-coloured gorge walls feature liberal coverings of grasses and wildflowers.

"It’s really quite special now. The flowers will be coming out throughout the season and we’ll see a really good growth spurt. Scenically, it’s changed already - there’s water everywhere, there’s been lots of growth and it’s really green," he said.

"The rivers have been significantly flushed and the waterholes look great - they will last throughout the winter season now and look spectacular throughout.  A lot of birds and animals here are opportunistic breeders with the rains, so some will be breeding now, but come September, when there will still be water around, it will be a real boom time, especially for birds."
