Did you know... that #Australia has the largest population of wild #Camels in the world! Camels were first introduced into Australia in the 1840's to assist in the exploration of inland Australia, brought over by the Afghan Cameleers. 🐪🐪 Learn more about the history of Camels in #CentralAustralia on an afternoon or #sunset tour with @pyndan_camel_tracks.
The #RimWalk at #KingsCanyon offers visitors an opportunity to get up close and personal and immerse themselves in the landscape. This scenic landscape of rugged ranges, ancient sandstone walls rising hundreds of metres to a plateau of rocky domes, rock holes and gorges in the #WatarrkaNationalPark is breathtaking. The Luritja Aboriginal people have called the Watarrka National Park area home for more than 20,000 years. The ancient red rock faces that soar above dense palm forests of palms is an important conservation area and refuge for more than 600 species of native plants and animals Photo credit to @tashajeaan 📷
As the sun kissed the mountains they were painted bright red. It was one of those mornings where you want nothing more than for time to pause and just hold you there. Still and silent. Nothing but creation in every direction Are the words used by @elisecook as she took this photo, and we wholeheartedly agree 🧡 The mountain ranges you will find throughout #CentralAustralia will make you feel all kinds of special things. ✨✨
As darkness falls and Uluru is thrown into silhouette, Field of Light illuminates. As far as the eye can see gentle rhythms of colour light up the desert. 🎆 The exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara is Munro’s largest work to date. Overwhelming in size, covering more than seven football fields, it invites immersion in its fantasy garden of 50,000 spindles of light, the stems breathing and swaying through a sympathetic desert spectrum of ochre, deep violet, blue and gentle white. ✨ Photo credit to @stevint 📷

When you see #KataTjuta peep over the horizon 😍 The #CentralAustralian #outback colour pallette changes throughout the day, like in this shot - Pinks, Purples and Blues.
