Hello blog reading people!
We are now in Alice Springs after 4 crazy days on tour of Ayers rock but i'll get to that in a minuet!
So we left Sydney and had a 3 day bus adventure to get to Melbourne! On the way we stopped at Canberra and did a tour of parliament house, stayed in a ski lodge and climbed the highest mountain in Australia and played in the snow on the top! (yes snow in Australia, was weird!!) and went to Wilsons Promonotry (no idea how you spell that!) and saw a snake, the 3rd most venoumous snake in oz to be precise!!
Only had one day in Melbourne before flying up to alice springs so we rode around on the trams and wondered around the shops for the day!
So, Ayers rock tour! we left bright and early on monday morning and drove for a few hours before we got to our camp site, had lunch then it was off to Ayers Rock (or Uluru as its known up here) it was prety cool to actualy see it for real, its mahoosive!! We went to the cultural centre to learn about it and its significane of it to the aboriginals of the area and then walked around some of the base and learnt about stories from the aboriginies too! was sssoooo hot tho!! Then it was back on the bus to a look out point to watch the rock change colour while the sun was setting! was ace to see and the champange we were given helped too haha
Next morning we were up at 4am! yes 4am!!! to go to a look out point to watch the sunrise at Ayers Rock! Was prety awesome to see aswell!! then we went for a walk around Kata Tjuta national park to see more big rocks!! then we drove to a different camping spot for the night!
The next morning we had a lie in and got up at 4.30!! drove to Kings Canyon and did a walk around there, it was like Indianna Jones land or like dinosaurs should be roaming around it! that afternoon we drove to anohter camp site and laid out under the stars before going to bed!
This morning we had a nice long lie in and got up at 7am haha went on a nature walk with an aborigional guide which was interesting then had a dot painting lesson and made our own dot painting bookmarks!!
