Recently I was invited on Jetstar Australia’s first flight direct from Melbourne to Uluru. I was SO excited!
Now I can finally share some of the photos from our time in The Red Centre. I’m not sure if many people know this but there are some scared sites that you cannot photograph, so I had to wait to get these approved before I could share. I think that’s pretty special, it’s exciting to see something so magnificent up close and see areas of The Rock you wont find in the media.
Uluru is beautiful, same goes to Kata Tjuta National Park. I knew I was going to have a great time there, my first trip to the Northern Territory, but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did…
We rode on the back of Harley’s, took a sunset Camel ride to The Sounds of Silence experience, which is dining in the desert under the stars, right next to Uluru!! I highly recommend this! All in a few days we made new friendships, watched traditional dancers, learnt about the heritage of the land and saw the rings of Saturn through a telescope (another highlight!!). Most of my friends asked me why I was wearing a jacket in the photos “but you’re in the Desert??” Yes the desert is freezing in Winter. -1 in fact whilst on a solo mission to shoot the sunrise.. without gloves brrrr. Worth it though! Many rewarding sunrises and sunsets, alone time, nights under the stars laying in the cold red dirt just looking up in awe.
I know I say this everywhere I visit, but I can’t wait to get back to the Red Centre and explore some more.
