These are the friendly folk who hosted us through the SERVAS program in Port Germein SA.
This is a young couple we gave a lift to from Erldunda to Yulara (the campsite near Uluru). They are standing in front of Mt Connor which is on the side of the road as you drive towards Uluru. People driving towards Uluru for the first time often think it is Uluru, so the locals have dubbed it Fooluru!
This the late afternoon view of the sky over the Yulara campsite.
Here is our very comfortable campsite with the tree on the left giving us precious shade from lunchtime onwards. Mish slept in her swag in the back of her Hilux and we slept in the van.
This is one of the many rock paintings still to be seen on the rock surfaces of Uluru. Each painting tells a different story that the local aboriginal people pass on from generation to generation and the explanation of the drawings is given to visitors when they go on walk
This is one of the Uluru national park rangers, and a former local teacher, who led the early morning guided Mala walk we went on.
These are the young people walking the Mala walk which is a small section of the walk around the base of Uluru.
This a colourful bird we encountered near the Mutijulu waterhole.
Part of Kata Tjuta (traditional name) also known as the Olgas (European name). We didn’t get time to explore this area for too long…perhaps next time.
You find young chicks everywhere hitch-hiking.
Below is I guess the reason why we made the trip to this area, to see family.
