Australian travel can be quite daunting to Australians themselves. Expensive and time consuming, how many readers have made the journey to Uluru itself, and gazed upon that emblematic monolith, the heart of the country? Probably very few.
Our two weeks spent around the Red Centre of Australia was unforgettably beautiful. Day after day we kept thinking "If this sight was in [exotic overseas country], we would fly there in a heartbeat to see it." And yet it took us many years to visit the quintessential part of our own backyard. Well, Emma had been once before, but we suspect the Little Miss Sunshine-style trip was instigated more by her parents than a wide-eyed five year old.
The West MacDonnell National Park, King's Canyon and Uluru are world-class experiences. And if you don't mind some adventurous driving, there's plenty more off the bitumen: Palm Valley was one of our favourites.
Go see Australia. It's awesome.
