Australia has a lot to discover. Even some of their natives didn’t know of great places to wander – extraordinary landscapes, laid-back cities, beautiful beaches and so much more to reveal.
It would be impossible to see the country and experience all it has to offer on a single trip.
Here are just top 10 reasons to visit Australia this spring – places and activities whether a foreign tourist or a native Australian looking to explore his own country.
10) Travel to the heart of Central Australia on an authentic Uluru’s Red Centre tour
The Red Centre is an extraordinary landscape of desert plains, weathered mountain ranges, rocky crevasses and some of Aboriginal Australia’s most sacred sites, including Uluru and Kata Tjuṯa. Yes, the earth and rocks of the Red Centre are basically red. But red isn’t the area’s only notable colour. The blue skies (and their shades of pink at sunrise, purple at sunset) are just as enduring. The greens and yellows of the desert flora, especially after rain. In fact, there are vivid flashes of unexpected hues almost anywhere in central Australia.
Experience floating in an outback waterhole that’s hidden deep inside a gorge. Dine out in style under a canopy of stars at the famous Sounds of Silence outdoor buffet., and watch the world’s most famous rock change colours at dawn and dusk are just some of the Red Centre’s only-in-Australia unmissable experiences. But it’s not the only way to see the rock. Walk around the base with an Aboriginal guide, take a helicopter flight or motorcycle tour, or see it from the back of a camel on an early morning or sunset safari.
The Red Centre’s growing appeal is also due to significant changes around the prominence of Aboriginal people and their culture.
