Equally spectacular were Kata Tjuta (formerly the Olgas); these rocks were bigger than Ularu many thousands of years ago but have worn away much more. The highest is still over 1000 metres........we did a couple of the walks into them and stayed to watch sunset. The pictures don't really convey the scale.
To mark the end of our Australian adventure we went on the Sounds of Silence dinner last night. It was a lovely evening - sparkling wine and canapes (including kanageroo, crocodile and smoked salmon) at sunset overlooking Uluru to the music of a didgeridoo player; then down to the desert for our 3 course dinner, which started with some traditional music, dance and stories and ended with some star gazing! The drinks flowed and the food and company were good - a lovely memory!
We go onto the last leg of our journey tomorrow - Thailand - 3 nights in Bangkok and 7 nights at the coast.........
