A technicolour dream world
Soothe your spirit with reflecting pools, kaleidoscopic sunsets and pristine desert skies.
The heart of Australia
For Anangu people, Uluru's weathered surfaces record the journey of ancestral beings.
The second you touch down at Ayers Rock Airport, it’s there. The heart of Australia: waiting. Waiting as it has for thousands of years for people to stand in awe, discover its beauty, feel its power. Nothing can prepare you for your first Uluru experience.
Mother Nature's canvas
The sacred monolith changes colour as the day progresses.
Light dances across the Red Centre with gentle strokes of art. Shades of pink and purple caress the skies as Uluru emerges from darkness, flowing through a palette of red, orange, mauve and chocolate.
Field of dreams
Ayer's Rock Resort's Field of Light installation has been extended to December 2020.
At dusk, as the stars come out and Uluru’s colour dims, Bruce Munro’s field of stems blooms like desert flowers. Every night, 50,000 lights blossom in rainbow colours.
A rainbow in the desert
Over 10 days from the end of September, Parrtjima celebrates Indigenous art and culture.
Outside Alice, vibrant lights ignite 2.5km of the MacDonnell Ranges for the Parrtjima festival, transforming the desert into a vast outdoor art gallery.
Let your heart melt
Australia's national symbol is hard to resist.
At Alice’s Kangaroo Sanctuary, Chris ‘Brolga’ Barns, star of the series Kangaroo Dundee, nurses orphaned joeys back to health and returns them to the wild.
Top of the world
Famous for its sunset market, Mindil Beach is just one of Darwin's postcard-perfect beaches.
As the sun sinks, painting streaks of colour across Darwin’s vast horizon, browse Mindil market, sip bubbles on a catamaran cruise or stroll a flawless beach.
To brave a predator
Darwin's Crocosaurus Cove offers Australia's only crocodile dive.
Hearts pound and pulses race at Darwin’s reptile sanctuary, Crocosaurus Cove. An adult male salty can weigh over 450kg.
An ancient wilderness
At almost 20,000km2, Kakadu is Australia’s largest national park.
From thundering waterfalls and wetlands bursting with wildflowers in green season to refreshing waterholes in the dry, Kakadu is the quintessential Top End experience. Its Aboriginal culture will live in your heart forever.
A fiery kiss
Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) takes its name from the song of a cicada.
In Nitmiluk National Park, the ceremonial grounds of the Jawoyn people, the Katherine River winds through 13 stunning gorges. At sunrise and sunset, aquamarine pools reflect the sandstone’s blazing colours. A helicopter tour delivers the perfect view of a landscape that, like Uluru, seems to exist both in and out of time.
