Lonely Planet has named the Red Centre as one of the top places to visit in 2019.
The global travel company released their Best in Travel lists of Top 10 Regions, Countries & Cities for 2019 today.
The Northern Territory’s iconic Red Centre came in at number four on the list of the Top 10 Regions to visit in 2019.
Lonely Planet spokesperson, Chris Zeiher, said the Red Centre was so hot right now and not just with the fabulous spring weather.
“Our red heart is pumping with immersive cultural experiences, jaw-dropping scenery and once-in-a-lifetime experiences," he said.
"Dine under the stars with a bush-tucker inspired menu at the brilliant Tali Wiru dining experience at Uluru Ayers Rock Resort. Catch your breath as you watch sunrise over the iconic formations of Uluru and Kata-Tjuta. Marvel at the breath-taking and seemingly impossible oasis that unfolds within Kings Canyon".
"The Red Centre is the beating heart of Australia, a place of surprises, and one that leaves a profound mark on those who visit," he said.
