Uluru-Kata Tjuta & Red Centre

The Red Centre is considered the spiritual heart of Australia, with incredible desert landscapes and iconic landmarks such as Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon and Mt Conner captivating countless visitors.

The Anangu people of Uluru have been the traditional custodians of this ancient land for many generations, balancing the intricate relationship between people, plants, animals and the landscape. In fact, archaeological evidence shows Aboriginal people have lived in Central Australia for at least 30,000 years.

The area is an important habitat for Red Kangaroos, Common Wallaroos and numerous raptors and bushbirds including Black Kites, Black Breasted Buzzards, Brown Falcons, Nankeen Kestrels, Wedge-tailed Eagles, Pied Butcherbirds, Crested Bellbirds and Chiming Wedgebills. Reptiles are also abundant with Thorny Devils, Sand Goannas, Central Netted Dragons, Long-nose Water Dragons and Blue-tongued Lizards commonly seen.

The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is a sanctuary for 21 mammals, 73 reptiles and 178 birds with many of these animals being  culturally significant, often being ancestral creatures.
