At the centre of this ancient landscape is the extraordinary
natural wonder of Uluru (also known as Ayer's Rock). To the west,
the equally impressive Kata Tjuta is a spectacular collection of 36
weathered red domes separated by narrow valleys.
Original Travel can arrange your holiday itinerary to include
exploration of this desert scenery and the dynamic ecology that
exists in this harsh and barren environment, or to discover the
cultural relationship between the aboriginals and the surrounding
land - their medicines, music, customs, legends and art that have
adapted to suit this arid environment.
The so-called 'Top End' of Australia, the Northern Territory, is
home to huge quantities of wildlife and impressive bird life across
thousands of square miles of national parks - including the
magnificent Kakadu National Park - criss-crossed by waterways,
spectacular gorges and valleys. In Kakadu's neighbouring Arnhem
Land there is also a labyrinth of caves and rock overhangs with
rock paintings that date back and estimated 50,000 years. This is
Australia at its finest and both the Northern Territory and Uluru
are well worth a feature on your holiday itinerary.
