The Red Centre is famous for its mammoth monoliths, red earth and indigenous culture. On the whole, the Red Centre has an ‘other-wordly’ look due to it’s remoteness, climate and landscape. The epi-centre of the Red Centre is the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Uluru is sacred to the Aboriginal people of the area and is estimated to be around 600 million years old!
This huge Outback park is home to one of the greatest natural wonders of the world – Uluru! Formerly known as Ayers Rock, Uluru stands 348 metres above sea level at its tallest point (24m higher than the Eiffel Tower), though the vast majority of its mass is actually underground. It’s not until you’re standing in front of it that you really understand the true size of this spectacular formation.
