  A closer view of Uluru
by SirRichard

If you visit Uluru (Ayers Rock), instead of climbing the rock (sacred, so it's a bit of an offence to aboriginals), go walking all around. There is a tracl around the rock (more than 10 kms I think) and it's a nice walk, as you can see closer details of the many holes, caves and wrinkles that Uluru has got. It took me about 2.3 hours to get around. Bring water, good shoes and a big hat. There are 2 water taps in case you run out of water.
