Closer to The Uluru (Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park), Red Centre, Australia

Uluru and The Red Centre

A visit to Australia’s Red Centre will present you with the deep red colours of dusk and the subtle orange of dawn, displaying the outback and the sacred sites of Uluru and the Olgas at their very finest.

Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park is a World Heritage Site, owned by the local Anangu Aboriginal people and managed by Parks Australia in cooperation with them.

Uluru, known for many years as Ayers Rock, holds a significant place in the Anangu people’s creation stories and laws, which are known as Tjukurpa and many of these stories relate to how the ancestral beings formed the Rock. The angular ridges and dry creek beds of the MacDonnell Ranges also provide some of the oldest landscape in the world. This region remains as it did 60 million years ago.

Amy Waters at Steppes was excellent. She was totally responsive to any questions and really listened to our wishlist to build a fantastic itinerary which more than met our expectations.


Amy was exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful and with a good sense of humour. Our holiday would not have been as successful and enjoyable without her guidance and input.


The service we received can't be faulted, Steppes were excellent all round and lovely to deal with - we regard them as friends.

Amy Waters

After my degree in Fine Art I didn’t really know what career I wanted or what path I would take. The only thing I knew is that having spent a summer in America it had given me the desire to explore and see as many places as possible before becoming a grown up and entering the real world.

Clare Higginson

It was my passion for languages that first encouraged me to leave the UK behind and grab my rucksack. Since then, it’s been a mixture of intriguing cultures, jaw-dropping landscapes and the wonder of seeing animals in their natural habitat that sees me continuously extending my travel wish list. I also seek adventure; exploring the deep blue or hiking a peak often winning favour. Although it’s my time horse herding in Mongolia that I regularly want to relive.
