Top Reasons to Go

Red Heart: Watching the sun rise and set at Uluru (Ayers Rock) is a once-in-a-lifetime experience you'll never forget.

Old Culture: The Red Centre, Top End, and the Kimberley are the best places to experience one of the oldest cultures in the world, that of Australia's Aborigines.

National Parks: With spectacular terrain and one-of-a-kind plant and animal species, rugged national parks tell the story of Australia's age-old landforms, especially across the gorge-pocked Kimberley region.

Wild Rivers: The waterways and billabongs of the Top End teem with wildlife, including saltwater crocodiles and a multitude of birdlife.

Cable Beach: It may be touristy, but riding a camel into the sunset on one of Australia's most beautiful beaches is hard to resist.
