          Overall, Sails in the Desert was good. There were some minor niggles, but the staff responded to them quickly. The location was good and the great part is that Ularu is protected now that uncaring people cant stay too close to it. The grounds were beautiful (see the photo of the lovely ghost gums). The pool was great (hope you like kids coz they own it). The food was very good. The staff lovely. The breakfast coffee was not great but for $4.50 you can get a double shot flat white that will keep you going for a while!

          Brilliant staff and great restaurant. Room is comfortable with a little private patio. A guide to the area is given as soon as you arrive, which was really helpful to decide which trips to do.

          The photos of Uluru really speak for themselves, though you can't really do justice in photos to something so amazing and massive. Formerly known as Ayers Rock and still called "the Rock" by the Aussies, it is a sacred place for the aboriginal peoples nearby. Now returned to the ownership of the indigenous tribes, Uluru is also a UNESCO World …

          Palya, dear friends,

          On the second day of our trip to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park we visited the remote part of the park, the Kata Tjuta formations. Another scared place for aborigines, the meeting place for men. The aboriginal name means "many heads". The English name of this mountain with 36 domes is Mount Olga (The Olgas), in honour …

          Fredag morgen - vi dro med fly tidlig på morgenen. Vi skulle til Ayers Rock - denne gigantiske monolitten/fjellet midt ute i ørkenen. Dette er et hellig fjell for aboriginerne, man skjønner det når man ser dette mektige, spesielle fjellet som rager 350 meter høyt og ca 1 km langt. Det er i utgangspunktet rødt - mye jern i jorda her - men på grunn …
