Hits & Misses: Alice Springs, Australia

“I love a sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges, of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons, I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror – The wide brown land for me!”  Dorothea Mackellar

HIT:  THE ROCK TOUR

Given that I work for the company, I gotta plug it!  But seriously, visiting Uluru, Kata Tjuta & Kings Canyon, has to be on everyone’s agenda when visiting the Red Centre of Australia.
3 days 2 nights is all you need to check out each of the famous sights in plenty of time, as well as walking around in beautiful red sand, visiting salt pans, a cultural centre, having dinner at Uluru’s sunset place, and so much more!

Kata Tjuta at sunset… love at first sight..

HIT:  ALICE SPRINGS DESERT PARK

I love visiting this place! Fairly expensive to get in at $35, but as you can spend hours and hours here, it equals out.
It is a wonderful wildlife sanctuary, with plenty to see – kangaroos, emus, dingos, so many birds in avaries etc..
In particular, the Birds of Prey flight show is fantastic – amazing to see them swoop on top of the crowd, and fly near the ranges, that is the backdrop to the park.
