Go truly off the beaten path by exploring Australia’s incredible rugged landscapes
Skip the crowded cities and beaches; for a unique experience of Australia, venture out to the Outback, the world-famous regions of vast and largely untouched wilderness. Easily accessible from the main cities or even by plane, these beautiful outback destinations bring you closer to mother nature.
1. Uluru (aka Ayers Rock)
The most iconic and popular attraction in the Australian Outback, Uluru is a must-visit spot that can now be directly accessed by plane. Located in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, the enormous red sandstone rock towers 348 metres above ground, even taller than the Eiffel Tower. To learn more about the rich history and culture of Uluru, explore it through the Maya Walk, a tour guided by rangers who are often the region’s local Anangu people. Elevate your visit with a magical experience: the award-winning Sound of Silence buffet dinner under the stars and with Uluru as your backdrop. While at the National Park, don’t miss exploring another famous rock formation, the Kata Tjuta, as well.
