Day 18 - Palm Valley to Uluru

Today we had a long drive, because of the delays in Alice Springs we have to go all the way down to Uluru in one day. The roads out of palm valley are pretty bumpy – and somewhere along it we lost our UHF antenna tip. :(

Once we got back to the main road it wasn’t much flatter, as the first 250km or so was pretty corrugated dirt.

We had a pretty good wildlife day today; we saw a herd of wild camels :camel: , some wild donkeys and lots of wild horses as well as finally seeing our first dingo.

Once we got past Kings Canyon the road turned back to tarmac and the last 300km didn’t take too long to pass.  As we got closer to Uluru we saw Mt Connor – lots of people get fooled that this is Uluru, but we all knew it was there.

We finally saw Uluru – it was huge.  We set up our campsite at the Ayes Rock resort and went out to watch the sunset over Uluru. We could also see Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) in the distance.  We all took heaps of photos as the rock changed color as the sun went down.
