1.) Uluru This stunning big red rock right in the heart of Australia is the single-most recognised icon of the country. Watching the colours of the rock and the sky change during sunrise and again at sunset can be a deeply spiritual experience. While there’s nothing quite like Uluru in the world, nearby, there’s also the breathtaking Kings Canyon, and the impressive Kata Tjuta nearby as well. G Adventures’ Red Centre Experience shares all this and more over 3 days, and you get to sleep under the millions of stars of the Outback sky. Where: Pick up from Alice Springs. All transport and accommodation provided. Prices: $399 for a 3-day Yolo tour (18-39 year olds), including 2 breakfasts, 3 lunches and 2 dinners. (Currently there’s a 20% discount on select departures!) Click here for more info.
