Travel 2 Australia & New Zealand 2018/19

Uluru (Ayers Rock) & Kings Canyon Few superlatives do justice to Uluru, and your first sight of this famous monolith may well take your breath away. This is the very heart of Australia, surrounded by miles of red desert, and the Rock stands testament to thousands of years of Aboriginal culture. Please note that the Anangu people, the traditional owners, would prefer visitors to choose not to climb Uluru. A lesser-known marvel of Australia’s Red Centre, King’s Canyon is an extraordinary chasm of sandstone walls, plunging 270m down to a tropical oasis at its base.
