Before visiting the Red Centre of Australia, I was a 21-year-old woman that had hardly seen any of her home country. As someone who has travelled a fair bit for their age, I could tell you more about other countries in the world than I could about my very own home of origin.
So, I finally decided to visit the Red Centre; the literal centre of Australia surrounded by red dirt, vast open spaces and some of the most spectacular natural monuments in the world.
The minimal people, rich Aboriginal culture and beautiful outback landscapes are what made me really fall in love with Australia. After almost 22 years, I finally came to realise just how beautiful this country really is.
And to really prove it to you, here are 51 images of my time in the heart of Australia, and 51 images that will encourage you to visit the incredible Red Centre too.
I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land, the Pitjantjatjara people, and pay respect to their Elders, past and present.
