Central Australia in the Northern Territory  is the region around Alice Springs
The total population is a mere 30.000 and all of them live in Alice Springs.
The region sports some of the most scenic and impressive landscapes and natural objects.
Best known to tourists are Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), but King's Canyon in the Watarrka National Park is of a surreal beauty.
Close to Alice Springs in the West MacDonnel National Park there is the impressive Simpson's Gap.
If you do not mind long busdrives, partly at night, and have no problem with rather strenuous walks, this is the place for you to visit.
