Central Australia was one of our favourite places to visit so far during our travels around Australia. Five places in Central Australia we consider to be must-see destinations are:
1. Uluru (Ayer’s Rock)
I guess this goes without saying that Uluru would make it on to the list. The rock was much more spectacular up close than we’d expected.
(For more photos on Uluru check out Base Walk)
2. Kata Tjuta (The Olgas)
The walk was long and it drizzled with rain most of the way. It’s usually dry, but a creek ran through the path marked out for people to walk around The Olgas. For us, that just added to the beauty of the place. It was oh-so-spectacular!
3. Kings Canyon
A true desert oasis – this place was breathtakingly stunning. Although the walk is really long, we loved it!
4. West MacDonnell Ranges
Stunning rock formations and gorges – we had a great time floating down ice cold gorges and walking around the region.
5. Gem Tree
This one is probably not on most travellers’ minds when they head to Central Australia. However, we had a great time fossicking for garnets. We found quite a few decent stones, and have got some great jewellery to show for it.
