Longitude 131 Destination
Renowned as the spiritual heart of Australia, the Red Centre in the Northern Territory is rich in Aboriginal culture and rugged outback beauty. Dual World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is a living cultural landscape, covering an area over 311,000 acres. Australia’s most recognisable natural icon and one of the world’s largest monoliths, Uluru (Ayers Rock) is the region’s gem and the sacred red domes of Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) stand nearby.
Delve into the foundation of Anangu culture and learn some of the ancient creation stories of the traditional custodians. The timeless, rolling red sand dunes of the desert are surprisingly alive with verdant native vegetation and a myriad of wildlife. Spend time exploring the stunning flora and fauna and come face to face with this irresistible land in a sensory experience at once magic, majestic and splendidly isolated.
This rock appears more wonderful every time I look at it, and I may say it is a sight worth riding eighty-four miles of spinifex sandhills to see.
