The Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park in many ways the centre of Australia
Uluru the largest monolith in the world.
Constantly changing colour and tone as the light hits it.
To see it shine red during sunset it amazing
To see it at sunset with the March full moon rising on the equinox truly spiritual.
The walk around the base of Uluru is approximately 10.5 km.
Uluru is a sacred place for Aboriginal Australians and being close to it one feels the sacred power of the rock that is ever changing in colour and mood.
Each crevice, crack, cave and stain tell part of an Aboriginal dreamtime story.
Stories often told in drawing in the rock caves.
Kata Tjuta is approximately 40 km from Uluru. A series of sandstone rocks through which valleys wind.
The Valley of the Winds walk is an approximately 7km walk through the rock outcrops
As I sit in a hotel room in Longreach, Queensland, reflecting on the two weeks spent immersed in the Red Centre a shiver still goes down my spine.
It took me almost a lifetime to get here but I may yet be back.
