Keep things going the next day: take in the dramatic natural features at Uluru and then hike along Kuniya Walk.

Alice Springs

Situated right in the heart of Australia, Alice Springs serves as an urban oasis deep within the country’s parched, desert-like Red Center.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ormiston Gorge and The Emily and Jessie Gaps Nature Park. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Emily Gap, take some stellar pictures from Anzac Hill, and view the masterpieces at Talapi.
