LOOK BACK: AUSTRALIA, AYERS ROCK

We were next off to Ayers Rock or known locally as Uluru for a couple of nights. The flight from Sydney was only three hours. Kata Tjuta and Uluru are the two major features of the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park. Uluru is sacred to the Anangu, the Aboriginal people of the area. The area around the formation is home to a plethora of springs, waterholes, rock caves, and ancient paintings. Uluru is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our resort was really nice, well planned out. It was like a contained holiday park designed by Voyages Resorts and you have different classes of resort. As we were only staying for a short time, we choose the cheapest which was The Lost Camel. It a shame, that it has since closed and changed into staff housing.
It was very hot there, over forty degrees every day. And what did surprise me other than the heat was how green it was, I was not expecting to see anything growing out here in the desert.
We spent most of our time, at the pool. We did experience the sounds of the silence dinner, which we did not enjoy much but the view was good.
This is Kata Tjuta, sometimes written Tjuṯa, and also known as Mount Olga. We did not get a chance to see this in the daytime.
