Our favourite places face competition from new kids on the block. Lee Atkinson reports on Australia's emerging holiday destinations.
I've just crossed something off my 'bucket list', but there's plenty more I have to do.
Daniel Scott sleeps under the stars, eats bush tucker and meditates on an outback journey of self-discovery.
The usual haunts may be booked solid but bargains await in places that go quiet in summer, writes Sheriden Rhodes.
Outback authenticity adds to the Uluru experience but getting local, indigenous people involved has been an ongoing challenge.
Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and Yulara.
The greatest tourist attraction in the Northern Territory. An awesome sight particularly at both sunrise and sunset.
There is something totally awe-inspiring about Uluru. There it sits in the centre of Australia. A huge monolith, 862.5 metres above sea level, 1395 km south of Darwin and 465 km south west of Alice Springs, rising out of the desert. No wonder the local Aborigines regarded it as a sacred site. The average white Australian, clinging to the shores of this vast continent, also regards 'the greatest stone on earth' as something very special.
Helen Greenwood explores Australia's best-known landmark with its traditional owners.
No matter how many times you've seen it in photos, nothing comes close to seeing this icon in real life. The giant monolith is best seen at sunset and dawn, as the light changes and the rock seems to glow a vivid shade of red. The 10km base-walk is a must-do, offering a different perspective on the site. Nearby Kata Tjuta, another impressive rock formation, completes this essential Central Australian experience.
