Changing colours of the big Sacred rock

“Do you want to go all the way to see a rock?” was the question few of my colleagues asked.

Well, it was one of my bucket list items, so I had to cross it off. I booked the tickets for the perfect long weekend of Queen’s birthday in June.

What am I talking about?

I am referring to a place called Uluru which is in Northern Territory of Australia. Uluru is also known as Ayers Rock.

What is Uluru famous for?

Uluru is a large sandstone rock formation. According to Wikipedia, Uluru is 1142 ft tall and is 2831 ft above sea level with most of its bulk lying underground. It has a circumference of 9.4 kms.

Sunset trip:

I had taken a sunset trip with AAT Kings. We were driven to a spot to witness the sunset over the rock and experience the spectacular colour changes of the rock.

Yes, the sunset was dramatic and beautiful. It definitely lived up to the hype. To top it up, the tour had organised some wine and nibbles to watch the sunset. How wonderful is that?
