FRIDAY 30TH MARCH TO WEDNESDAY 5TH APRIL
Hiring a car ended up being the cheapest way to see everything. Got up to see the rock for sunrise to see it changing colour and then went on a free guided walk along the Mala trail.One of the 2 park rangers was a member of the local Anangu tribe so we learnt a lot about the cultural side as well as how it was formed, wildlife etc which was fascinating.After hearing bout the sacredness of the rock we decided not to climb it and instead did the base walk.Was good to see how the rock changed as u go around it but halfway the flies were really starting to pi** us off!!Should have bought a head net! In the afternoon we drived to the Olgers to explore em and then to teh cultural center to learn more about the history of the national park. If you want to know everything tho u have to be accepted as a member of the anangu tribe before ur told all their secrets!We capped teh day off by going back to the rock for sunset. Kym preffered sunrise but sunset was impressive just the same.
Up at 5 again the next day to drive to Alice springs stopping off at Kings Canyon on the way.We reckon it just had teh edge on uluru and the Olgers. THe views from the top were unbelieveable!
The heat in the outback went to Kym's head somewhat:-
1)the night before-"I think we should do a reccee to see if we can find Ayers Rock"- In case any of you dont know-Its a massive rock in the middle of the desert.Stevie wonder wouldnt have missed it!
2)When chatting with our roomies bout how they thought Ozzy people always thought they were cleverer than them she replied- "Cos your Irish?"-class!
3) "You dont fu***** own me!" to the desert flies.
All in all it Uluru, teh Olgers and KC weree spectacular!Well worth it!
