Alice Springs to Ayers Rock

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Many years ago my wife and I flew into Alice Springs, spent two days in the somewhat sleepy town, before we took a car and drove to Ayers Rock. In those days very few called it Uluru and I was still allowed to climb it. Starting October 2019 it will be banned to climb Uluru Kata out of respect to its traditional owners, the Anangu people

I still remember well, when we drove by car through this “hole” in the mountain

Lake Amadeus is a large salt lake, some 180 km long and 10 km wide

Shortly thereafter Uluru comes into sight

The shadow is a bit strange

Now it’s on to the Olgas (Kata Tjuta or “many heads”)

Glad to see, once in a while, your wonderful P3D images (as this set here), Bernd! The RW experience of visit to go with it, is, of course, always a plus....!

Ayers Rock is an Aussie icon, like Devil's Tower in the US or Montserrat near Barcelona, Spain...
