The ‘Red Centre’ is an apt description for this area because of its location within Australia and because the oxidized iron in the soil gives the whole area its distinctive and immediately recognizable reddish glow. It’s a landscape made famous by Albert Namatjira, hailed as one of Australia’s greatest artists and pioneer of Aboriginal Art. During the walks we will immerse ourselves in this ancient land and experience the natural wonders of the landscape.

At the major sites of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), our knowledgeable guide will tell us about these special places which are considered living, breathing, cultural landscapes for the Anangu people. We will hike glorious Watarraka (Kings Canyon) and skirt the rim of the canyon before descending into the lush Garden of Eden.

Visit sections of the Larapinta Trail in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Walk in awe at Mt Sonder and Ormiston Pound, while marvelling at the rich red walls of the Serpentine Gorge. Central Australia has a rich Aboriginal culture, with people and the land peacefully co-existing for many thousands of years. We will stay in remote working cattle stations, each an oasis in the outback that stands as testament to the ingenuity of early settlers and reflects the region's character. They are basic but comfortable and provide a place to relax after a day of walking and all the rooms have en-suites. There will be a choice of easier or harder walking options along the way.

This is sure to be a truly memorable, pack free walking holiday.
