Coming from Curtin Springs Station along the Lasseter Highway we saw for the first time in our life’s Uluru from a distance of about 40 km’s. And the next hours ‘it’ was coming closer and closer. At the park Entry Station we doubted paying the entrance fee for the Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park of AUD 25,- per person. Such a ticket is valid for 3 consecutive days and we had only a couple of hours to visit before leaving by plane.
But we never regretted our visit. From the moment we entered the park, it seemed if there was a kind of magic around the scenery. Driving in the park and coming closer, we stopped where possible (only allowed on official car parks) and enjoyed the view of this rock right in the middle of the heart of Australia. Each time Uluru was different and had an other colour, although we didn’t visited with sunrise or sunset (see my un-edited pictures).
It was absolutely exciting to be so close to one of the wonders of the world. I can not explain, but Uluru did attract us more than I ever thought ‘it’ could do. For us Uluru was definitively more than just a rock.
Please don’t climb Uluru !!
