More pictures of our trip:
Like Ayers Rock, the Olgas change colour as the sun moves around the sky.
The Olgas are another group of large rocks about 50km from Ayers Rock. It's all part of the same park. We got pictures from Uluru and then we drove over and walked around the Olgas for a bit too.
If you look at the top of the rock, you'll see people are actually climbing it. The aboriginals do not want us to climb it as they feel that is disrespectful. So we just walked around it. It's awesome no matter what you do.
Ayers Rock is full of caves. It was a spiritual place for the aboriginals. They used to gather here. These are some of the petroglyphs inside one of the caves.
We went to the cultural center when we got to Uluru. They had all these great benches all over the park. I want one!
Here's my little buddy.
This baby camel was found by the owner of the camel riding place wandering around without a mother. They took him to a safe place where he will grow up and probably act as a decoy to capture other feral camels.
These camels are actually feral but they capture them and then they can use them to ride. There are over 600,000 feral camels in Australia!
So, after seeing camels in Ulura, I found this sign in Alice Springs.
We went to Desert Park in Alice Springs and saw some native birds. These are Black Cockatoos. I later saw a tree full of them on the way back south on the highway.
