Ayers Rock and surrounds
We have spent today exploring Ayers Rock and surrounds. The campground is huge and there is a variety of little shops, service station, cafés and restaurants, as well as a Supermarket to allow us to stock back up on essentials before we head back south tomorrow.
The morning was spent with the 2 big kids and my husband braving the climb up to the peak of Ayers Rock (Uluru)
Whilst they were enjoying the views from the top, I drove around to the cultural centre, they have great displays perfect for all ages and a nice little cafe with a mix of cakes, hot food and cold drinks. Our almost 2 year old was very excited to see a great little children’s corner set up.
We went back to pick up the exhausted but very proud climbers and headed around the rock to walk some more.
It was interesting to check out the waterholes, aboriginal paintings and little caves nestled into the side that you don’t notice from a distance.
We then took the almost 45km drive to the Olga’s (Kata Tjuta) – the drive is nice with some great views along the way.
The best thing was the view on the way back was just as good.
