Red Centre Way Drive, Alice Springs to Uluru, Australia's Outback
Alice Springs trip on 11 Dec 10
When you picture Australia's Outback, it is generally images of the Northern Territory's Red Centre that come to mind --desert sands, sage-coloured Spinifex, endless blue skies and blissful isolation. The Red Centre Way tourism drive is a brilliant pathway through the Outback, linking the Northern Territory's 'red-heart' landmarks. The drive forms a loop from Alice Springs, through the spectacular West MacDonnell Ranges to Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon), on to Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), and back to Alice via Rainbow Valley. Detours can also be made to include Hermannsburg and Palm Valley. The journey takes in magnificent gorges, chasms, waterholes, canyons, mountain ranges and rock formations, dispelling the notion that the desert is merely sand dunes.
