The Red Center extends approximately from Tennant Creek to Southern Australia. In this huge desert, the red colour is literally everywhere: the sand is red, the rocks and mountains as well. The contrast between the electric-blue of the sky and the deep-red of the desert is startling! Alice Springs is the main city of the Red Center, but people do not come to this part of Australia to stay in cities. The main attractions of the Red Center are its natural landscapes and rock formations, formed thousands of years ago by erosion. Besides the well-known monolith of Uluru / Ayers Rock, many rock formations, like the 36 domes of Kata-Tjuta, Kings Canyon, the Devil's Marbles and the West MacDonnell Ranges, are truly spectacular.
