An e-book by the authors of the Grampians Walks guide book, Monica & Phil Coleman. An Insiders’ Guide to the Red Centre.
With over 25 years of exploring and guiding walking tours in the Red Centre, Monica knows this region like the back of her hand.
This e-book guides you to the well-known places like Alice Springs, Uluru and Kings Canyon as well as off-the-beaten track destinations. It’s more than just a selection of the usual mainstream tourist places that everybody visits. It also includes a whole lot of additional places that you’d be unlikely to find on your own, including our own favourites. If there is a track worth driving, a hike worth doing, a waterhole or bush campsite worth stopping at, then it’s covered.
No matter if you have two weeks or two months, no matter if you have a 2WD vehicle and no off-road experience, or if you’ve been a member of your 4WD club for decades, Destination Red Centre shows you how to get the very most out of your trip.

Each one starts or finishes in Alice Springs, allowing you to return there to restock. They can easily be joined together to form longer trips.
