The amazing view across the top of Ayers Rock

For many years I have wanted to visit Ayers Rock, finally I got the chance with my husband and 3 boys.

To see it for the first time was just mesmerising, as we drove towards it got bigger with every turn in the road.

We climbed to the top which certainly isn't easy but the view was amazing 'We felt like we were on top of the World'. The climb up took about 1 1/2 hours, the climb down was about 1 hour.

Then we walked around the base which is about 7 or 8 kilometres and 2 1/2 hours later we were totally wrecked but so excited that we had visited that Awesome 'huge red rock' in Central Australia!

My wife and I visited Ayers Rock on our 12 week, 10,000km road trip circling the eastern half of Australia last January - it's beautiful! We have big rocks back here in the states, but something about the isolation of Ayers Rock makes it all the more stunning.

Thanks for your blog, it was a huge help in planning our trip!


I came there too...

I came there a couple of months ago and it was breathtaking. It was all because of this package. http://www.outback-australia-travel-secrets.com/australia-travel-blog.html

Well Done.

It is absolutely fantastic. I suggest that anyone climbing the rock allow an extra few hours to explore the top beyond the cairn. It's truly marvelous!
