The Northern Territory (NT) is a vast federal territory in Australia famed for its Outback desert landscapes. with stirring landscapes and abundant wildlife, which deliver the experience from scenic flights, crocodile spotting and fishing charters to camel rides, overnight walks, hikes and waterhole swims, you’re spoilt for choices in the Northern Territory.
In the arid Red Centre lie the iconic and most popular landmark sandstone monolith Uluru (Ayers Rock), the red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta, the sculpted cliffs of Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park and remote Alice Springs.
Uluru is undoubtedly up there as Australia’s most iconic postcard image, so will you make the pilgrimage to that famous Great Rock that looms on the fiery red horizon?
Aside from being a religious place, Uluru plays a huge part in Australian and aboriginal history. Approximately 500 million years ago it was part of the ocean floor which due to various geographical reasons gradually became the huge piece of sacred red rock it is today.
Uluru was and still is inhabited by dozens of ancestral ‘beings’ whose activities are recorded at many sites across the rock some of which can be seen on the base walk

Any adventure tour to the Red Centre begins in Alice Springs. Often used as a pit stop as the gateway to a plethora of popular tourist sites, Alice Springs is smack-bang in the middle of Australia and is a hub of Aboriginal art and a great place to plan your outback adventure before you set off, and also grab some last minute essentials before you lose yourself in the great crimson heart of Australia.
During your time in Australia’s Red Centre a visit to Kings Canyon will also unveil yet another epic vista that will leave you feeling dwarfed in comparison. Kings Canyon is a mammoth gorge with rock faces that scale hundreds of metres.
Deep in the gorge you’ll find hidden rock-pools and lush plant life as well as many animals that call the gorge home, including; broad-nosed bats, flocks of zebra finches, the Spinefex hopping mouse and the thorny devil to name but a mere handful of the local inhabitants.
Kings Canyon’s most famous spots include the Lost City, Garden of Eden, Amphitheater and North and South Walls, however a walk around the Kings Canyon Rim will present enough Kodak moments to last you a lifetime.

Summer waterfalls, #KingsCanyon style! If you've hiked the 6km Rim Walk, you'll know that this isn't the regular view you get looking across the canyon. Following decent rainfall in the Red Centre, @anika205 was lucky enough to catch these falls running into the Garden of Eden 💦 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Anika! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT
