We arrived at Yulara on the 13th of July. On the way, we saw a large rock similar to Uluru, but it turned out to be Mt Connor, the place lots of people mistake for Uluru, and we also saw some wild dogs.
On our first day there, we went to Kata Tjuta. We walked through The Valley of the Winds and it was freezing, like ice, even though the sun was shining. Kata Tjuta is made of 36 domes of rock. The rocks were like wood eaten by termites because they had lots of caves and they were huge.
The next day we hired bikes and rode 10 km around the base of Uluru. This was fun as we explored the different creeks, waterholes and gorges around the bottom of the rock.
Do you see the love heart?
We also saw our Nana and Papa in the same caravan park as us.
Uluru was different to Kata Tjuta because Uluru was made from sand whereas Kata Tjuta was made from lots of river stones stuck together millions of years ago, but both have caves and creeks.
On our last night we went on a sunset camel ride. The camel ride was really fun but scary because of how the black faced camel came to sit back down – the camel’s name was Tyson. Tyson came down front first and wobbled a little bit. It was as scary as being on a wild horse.
