The heart of Australia is home to many of the most important icons of Aboriginal and Australian culture, including Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), Alice Springs, and the Ghan railway. There are also Aboriginal art centers like Papunya and Hermannsburg in Central Australia. It is also a place where you can experience Australia’s true Outback spirit. Central Australia epitomizes Australia’s vast and unspoiled desert interior, whether you visit from elsewhere in Australia or from abroad.
There is an abundance of nature in Central Australia. The landscape is dominated by red sand and rock, while the sky is filled with a million stars almost every night. Despite the arid climate of the Red Centre, the land is rich and abundant, as evidenced by the variety of flora and fauna found there. Central Australia is home to kangaroos, wallabies, dingoes, emus, echidnas, peenties, goannas, geckos, and huge eagles, in addition to imported species like camels.
Alice Springs is the town unofficially known as the capital of Central Australia.
