Oceania 2001 - Australia - Ayers Rock / Uluru

The most popular spot of Australia is the Ayers Rock. Before I visited this place, I always thought this is much ado about nothing. But if you are there, it is really different.

... or do a 3 h round walk along the base ...

The brain, Ayers Rock

... or climb the steep path up the 350 m (level above base) ... the Aboriginal people do not like it, but if you are in a good condition, it is an unique experience. Take care and avoid a disaster!
