Located right in the center of Australia, the national park boasts perhaps the country's most iconic natural symbol and a sacred place for the region's indigenous people--as well as Kata Tjuta, a collection of 36 red rocks forming an equally distinctive sight.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is known for nature, museums, and outdoors. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: take in the dramatic natural features at Uluru, go for a walk through Lungkata Walk, take an in-depth tour of Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Uluru Hiking Path.

Geologic Formations · Specialty Museums · Nature & Parks
A largely unpopulated, parched land of deep red desert, spectacular rock formations, and small, isolated settlements, Northern Territory has perhaps the most distinctively Australian aesthetic of all the country’s states. The region’s towns and cities are clustered around the Stuart Highway--the iconic road that serves as Northern Territory’s main artery--rather than the coastline, as is normally the case in Australia.
