Red Centre Option
Australia’s Red Centre is as different from the UK as anywhere you are likely to see. It is also vastly different to the rest of populated Australia. As such you will see things there you won’t find anywhere else, including the Royal Flying Doctor Service, the School of the Air and, just a mere 463 kilometres (six hours by road) from Alice Springs, the breath-taking Uluru (Ayers Rock).
