morning sunrise over Ayers Rock

Day 13 of Australia Adventure - Uluru , Australia   - April 29th 2010

Get up early this morning and goto this tent where our tour manager has bk all set up for us. Lots of cereal and juices. It is a rushed bk as we are going to watch the sunrise over Ayers Rock. We on the bus and make it to the viewer platform and watch the sun rise over Ayers Rock, quite an amazing thing to experience. Many other people are here as well, including Kettle as well.

Afterwards we make our way to the base of Ayers Rock and do the hike around the rock which is about a 10km length. The way around is very amazing as one gets a different prospective of the area. There are many sacred spots as photos are not allowed in some areas. On route on one spot of the trail, came close encounter with a Dingo, just looking for food I guess, overall a great hike and come to a neat little water hole.

sun rise at Ayers ROck
As well some spots of where there are ancient artworks.

From here we then make it to the Cultural Centre of Aboriginal History. It is quite interesting learning about the information here.

Later on that day, a few of us, actually its me, Brian, Lauren and Carin we do an excursion of  helicopter flight over Ayers Rock and the Olgas. Reason for doing it as its my first time in a helicopter. Which is really neat and a great view of the area. Overall it is so hard to describe these experiences, as I have so many photos, therefore it will be best for you to view the photos and see what I mean about this area.

Later that evening, we go out to view the sunset over Ayers Rock, of a champagne sunset.
There is a big table full of nibbles and champagne to celebrate the occasion.
There are 22 of us and 27 bottles of champagne, within 20 minutes all that champagne was gone, and the group was on a crazy party binge.
People falling over and running and dancing, very crazy evening. Make it back to the lodging and during this time, the contiki crew and Lucy are all drunk and crazy dancing on the bus.

Evening is spent in the local bar dancing to a good band and drinking beer. Have a big burger for dinner tonight and its very filling. Crazy Christoph is taking photos of himself again during this time. Overall a good night.
