Red Centre Way

Natural Attractions

Discover the Australian outback and the world-renowned landmarks of Uluru / Ayers Rock, Kata Tjuta / The Olgas and Watarrka National Park, Kings Canyon on a four or five day adventure drive along the Red Centre Way out of Alice Springs.

From Alice Springs, travel west through the West MacDonnell Ranges to Glen Helen, stopping along the way at Simpsons Gap, Ellery Creek Big Hole and Ormiston Gorge. Overnight at Glen Helen Resort or continue on the 260 kilometre Mereenie Loop, part of which is unsealed, to Kings Canyon, where 300 metre sheer cliff faces and a palm-fringed swimming hole are highlights. Stop along the way at Tnorala / Gosse Bluff Conservation Reserve – a huge crater formed by a comet over 130 million years ago.

Take the Kings Canyon Rim Walk for breathtaking views over the red landscape before driving 300 kilometres south to Uluru where its sheer size is best appreciated from a nine kilometre walk around the base. Travel on to see Kata Tjuta / The Olgas, stay for sunset and enjoy the magnificent view or return to Uluru.

Return to Alice Springs via Rainbow Valley, a massive sandstone formation of coloured bands off the Stuart Highway.
