See & Do

Touring the spectacular landscapes of Central Australia is far more than a sightseeing holiday: it’s an adventure, an escape, and a time of personal discovery.

You are in awe as the first light of day turns the grey monolith of Uluru /Ayres Rock a deep, smouldering red. You are dwarfed by the thirty-six brooding, domed rocks of Kata Tjuta / the Olgas: you marvel at how the Devils Marbles balance silently and precariously, as they have for millennia. You stand on the red cliffs of Kings Canyon, gazing down into the fresh pools of blue water, surrounded by its garden of prehistoric cycads.

It’s all here, waiting for you to experience, explore and enjoy – please see a list of tours and attractions below.
