Australia trip – one year ago today: Tuesday 11th November

In November 2014, Rob and I explored parts of Australia. Here’s what we were doing a year ago today.


Uluru and Kata Tjuta

An early start this morning (up at 4.30) to get out to view sunrise at Uluru. It was fantastic seeing the rock ‘come to life’ as the sun rose.
After this we took a walk to the base of the rock, which was really pretty amazing (touching this sacred rock was quite something).
We then drove about 50km across to the less-known enormous rocks at Kata Tjutu (another Aboriginal sacred site, also known as the Olgas), stopping first at a viewing platform on the red dunes.
The heat was already well into the 30s when we set off for a walk into Walpa Gorge, but it was well worth the trek.
We’ve spent the afternoon chilling back at the resort.
We plan to go and see sunset at Uluru again later.
