There’s a wild magic to the ancient landscapes of the red centre and top end. It’s what draws visitors back time and again.
For tens of thousands of years, these lands have been home to vibrant and continuously evolving cultures.
Here are 5 experiences that’ll get you acquainted with the heart and soul of Australia as well as its traditional owners.
Uluru is one of Australia’s most recognisable landmarks and is also a place of deep spiritual importance to the Anangu people. Their Tjukurpa, or law, explains both how Uluṟu was formed and how it should be cared for today.
The ranger-led activities in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park are currently on hold, but you can still walk around the iconic sandstone monolith. As well as realising just how large it is (the full walk is slightly over 10km), you’ll have the opportunity to learn some of the stories that have been passed from generation to generation for millennia.
For guests at Ayers Rock Resort, a range of free daytime activities delve into the food, art and traditions of Indigenous groups around Australia.
