It was a ? whether to include Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock) on our itinerary but we decided it was another Down Under icon that we needed to visit to complete our Aussie experience. As one of our guides put it, "Why visit a big red rusty rock?" And, with that perspective, there is no reason. It is, however, such a part of the Aborginal experience, specifically the Anangu tribe, that when their creation stories are being shared while you are in the presence of the rock you are awed by the place and their history amidst it. If you spend even a few moments appreciating the stillness of the watering holes while listening to the song birds, Uluru will gift you with a greater appreciation of life in all its forms.
