Lisa Wilkinson’s Top 5 Things to Do in the Northern Territory’s Red Centre


Lisa Wilkinson’s job takes her to some beautiful locations, and a recent trip to Australia’s Red Centre in the Northern Territory was no different. This trip was adrenalin packed, with a side of pampering and stunning scenery, like all good getaways should be.

We spoke to Lisa to find out her Top 5 Things to Do in Northern Territory’s Red Centre. Here’s what made her must-do list. 

1. Experience Uluru and Kata Tjuta by helicopter

“Take to the air to see these Aussie icons from a completely different perspective – they are even more breathtaking from above than they are from the ground. Plus, if you’ve never been on one, rest assured that helicopter rides are always exhilarating.”

2. A camel trek

“Ride these ships of the desert through the Red Centre’s beautiful sand dune country. You’ll meander through the rolling red dunes as you learn about Uluru’s unique flora and fauna. It’s an amazing way to enjoy the outback landscape.”

TRY IT: Uluru Camel Tours

3. Sunrise picnic on Mt Conner

“A desert sunrise is a thing of beauty, but watching one from the summit of a 300m high mountain makes the experience completely transcendental. What better way to toast the day?”


4. Sounds of Silence dinner under the stars

There’s no doubt that dining under Uluru’s starry desert sky is a unique experience. The bush tucker-inspired food also gives you the rare chance to try native bush ingredients like crocodile and quandong.”

5. Red Ochre Spa treatment

“A relaxing massage or facial is the perfect way to top off an active NT adventure.”
