Awesome and remote Outback landscape

The Red Centre is the Australia of most people’s imagination. This is the home of the Outback – red dust, empty tracks, unique wildlife and big characters; and the land of Uluru – a giant sandstone formation rising boldly out of its seemingly stark landscape. Perhaps more than anything, this is the land of ‘Dreamtime’ and the part of Australia most in touch with its Aboriginal culture.

Visiting Uluru and the Red Centre fulfilled a lifetime’s ambition for me and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Whether it be watching the sun rise over Uluru or enjoying the sunset with the incredible Sounds of Silence dinner, the whole area leaves you with a lasting memory.
