The Rock

Well what can you say about Uluru (Ayers Rock)!  We were very excited to get here.

On the way we passed the undie tree.

Not sure what the undie tree was all about, but it was fun.

First night camping for the trip.
And guess what? During the night, it rained!

First proper glimpse.

It really is rather magnificent.

Dressed in our warmest gear, you would have thought we were at the snow!

I have about 100 more photos of the rock.

More to come soon!

At the moment I am blogging in the car just out of Tennent creek. It is 28 degrees, not rain or clouds. Yay!

  6. It is so beautiful isn't it? Quite magical..Told you it gets cold in the desert! Rachaelxx

  7. Glad you are all having such a great time. Thanks for sharing your journey with us. Looking forward to the next post. By the way... Did you climb the rock or just observe? How is the camper trailer going?

  8. Hello :) Just thought we would leave a note to let you all know we have visited your blog during class and have really enjoyed reading about your adventures! The photos are amazing. We found "the cell" very interesting and we are currently researching what the "undie tree" is all about- we are quite curious! We have tracked your trip so far on a map of Australia and we are very envious! It is cold and wet here in Horsham :( We are learning lots of new things through looking at your photos, thank-you! We look forward to keeping track of your travels :) Take care and stay safe.... we miss you here at school Miss B!

  9. Glad you are all having a great time!
    Max has arrived,he is adorable, will do a post when I get decent pics - I thought getting a decent picture of the boys was hard!

  10. 3rd time lucky? 28 degrees sounds great, now you can feel sorry for us! photos are great, especially the collage around the Rock. Glad you had something to occupy yourselves while travelling. Lulu & I got wet walking back from Special School this morning - managed another way to get wet! Check blog please. Love Nan & Pa

  11. Well Ayers Rock looks pretty much the same from the 31 years since I last saw it! You could climb it then, but I preferred the Olgas! Bet you wish you were helping with a house move instead of your own moving house, but glad it's all looking like fun (even the bad bits!) Love from the UK NX
