We arrived at te resort town of Yalara and were quite taken by the size of the resort. There are several hotels, a huge campsite, a supermarket, lots of bars, cafes and restaurants, souvenir shops, a post office, even a hairdressers! The resort is smack bang in the middle of nowhere, and yet this purpose built tourist complex is here. We drove out to Ayers Rock that evening, my birthday eve, and drove around the massive rock. The first time ou see Uluru, it really is just amazing. We had no idea it was this big, and for this gigantic rock to be here surrounded by endless flat desert is truely awesome.
You get a 3-day pass for your $25 each, so we decided to take full advantage of our ticket and go as many times as possible!
The weather was pretty crap but still unbelievably hot. We found some bbqs and cooked ourselves up a treat of bbq-ed meat and some veggies thrown on for good measure. We sat eating our dinner with Ayers Rock right in front of us. The sky was so dark with angry storm clouds and we got to see a rainbow cast itself over Ayers Rock, how incredible!!!
Birthday eves don't get much better than this!
