Today was all about the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
We were determined to get a close up look at Uluru so decided to walk the full base track around the rock. The full 10.6kms. This was challenging at times but with a couple of snacks we got there.
What an amazing cultural experience. Whilst others chose to ignore the recommendation of NOT climbing the rock, we were happy to respect the elders wishes and view in awe from the base.
After a quick bite to eat at the cultural centre we went for a drive to Kata Tjuta (Olgas). There were no takers for any further walking so apart from a stroll to a viewing platform this was viewed from the car. Maybe tomorrow.
Baz spent the afternoon having a couple of beers chatting to Dave & Steve in the caravan park discussing Ford Rangers (tyres, canopy's, fridges, batteries etc), caravan BBQ's and the next stage of our adventures.
Dinner was at the Pioneer Hotel where the process was to buy the meat from the BBQ menu, then self cook. As the saying goes, while in Rome do what the Roman's do - the boys had Kangaroo fillet, Emu sausage and crocodile tail. Not sure if it was the chef or the meat - YUM.
