A full day roundtrip through the Red Centre from Uluru to Kings Canyon offers a real sense of the outback with its vast red sand plains and blue domed skies. Settle in to the rhythm of the road, sing along to some road trip tunes or take it as a mind-opening mediation.

Along the way pass Mount Conner (known as ‘Fooluru’), the historic cattle station at Curtain Springs and Kings Creek Station, famous for its camel burgers.

Kings Canyon is found in the Watarrka National Park and is roughly midway along the road to Alice Springs from Uluru. Embark on the four-hour Rim Walk which climbs the canyon’s steep stone walls and follows the contour of its dramatic cliffs, leading to the surprisingly lush, fern-filled groves of the Garden of Eden.
