The Heart of Central Australia

Situated right in the heart of Australia, Alice Springs serves as an urban oasis deep within the country’s parched, desert-like Red Center.
Take a break from Alice Springs with a short trip to Standley Chasm Angkerle in West MacDonnell National Park, about 34 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take some stellar pictures from Anzac Hill, steep yourself in history at Alice Springs Telegraph Station Historical Reserve, shake up your sightseeing with The Rock Tour - Day Tours, and identify plant and animal life at Alice Springs Reptile Centre.

For reviews, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, read Alice Springs holiday builder website.

Please note that visitors are no longer allowed to trek up Uluru.

Located right in the center of Australia, the national park boasts perhaps the country's most iconic natural symbol and a sacred place for the region's indigenous people--as well as Kata Tjuta, a collection of 36 red rocks forming an equally distinctive sight.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is known for nature, museums, and outdoors. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the dramatic natural features at Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga, explore the activities along Mutitjulu Waterhole, trek along Uluru Hiking Path, and go for a walk through Lungkata Walk.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

You can drive from Kings Canyon to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in 3.5 hours. In October, daytime highs in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park are 38°C, while nighttime lows are 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
