Day 7: Craig saw the sunrise at Uluru while the rest of us slept. He didn't have to go far...just behind the caravan up a slope!
After brekky we all proceeded to Uluru. We bought our 3 day pass and within seconds I had pulled off the road to get my first pictures. AMAZING!!!
Needless to say Harry had had enough stopping and starting after about the fifth time. He, as with the rest of them, just wanted to get to the Rock!
If you haven't been to Uluru, well let me tell you this for free...WOW. The sight of this great big red rock is incredible! I can only imagine what the explorers thought when they saw it in the distance after miles of flatness.
We enjoyed one of the short walks around Uluru and the walk to the only waterhole at the base. My photos could not capture the detail of the rock face and the height of the walls. Only the fact that the kids look like ants gives you some idea of the scale this rock is.
After a late lunch and a refreshing swim in the pool (along with the rest of the camp site), we headed back to see the sun set over Uluru. This was not as speccy as I was anticipating, but enjoyable all the same.
Tomorrow we are checking out Kata Tjuka, also known as The Olga's (or as Darcy has nicknamed them The Ogres).
