Located in the centre of Australia, Alice Springs enjoys an almost legendary status. A frontier town surrounded by vast deserts, “Alice” is a complex mix of Aboriginal and European colonial history.

Not only does the Territory boast some of the planet's most incredible wildlife, but the “tamed” parts of the city also offer superb restaurants, classy bars and luxe accommodation.

There is even more reason to visit the spiritual heart of Australia in 2016: the monumental art phenomenon, Bruce Munro’s Field of Light Uluru, made its Australian debut on 1 April. The solar-powered installation will illuminate a remote desert area within sight of majestic Uluru and will remain open throughout the Red Centre’s distinct seasons until 31 March 2017.

Katherine and its surrounds are the place to go for true outback adventure and indigenous experiences.

The Northern Territory's Katherine region stretches from Dunmarra in the south to the Daly River region in the north. In total it covers an incredible 480,000 sq kilometres. From east to west it touches both the Queensland and West Australian borders. Katherine and its surrounds are the place to go for true outback adventure and indigenous experiences.

Kings Canyon is part of the Watarrka National Park in Australia's Northern Territory. Sitting at the western end of the George Gill Range, Kings Canyon is approximately midway between Alice Springs and Uluru.

This ancient formation of tall red rock faces that soar above dense palm forests of palms is an important conservation area and refuge for more than 600 species of native plants and animals, many unique to the area.

Kata Tjuta, formerly known as The Olgas, is a group of large ancient rock formations approximately 30 kilometres away from Uluru in Australia's Red Centre. Together these giant stone formations form the two major landmarks within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
