This evening we did the reverse of this morning and headed into the desert to watch the sunset of Ayers Rock!
We made ourselves up the cutest picnic with sandwiches, crisps and biscuits, caught the Ayers
Rock Express bus to the sunset view point and enjoyed!
At first we found a cute little opening with no one around and sat there to eat our picnic but soon realised no one was there because of the vile smell and the hundreds of flies buzzing around. (That’s one bad thing about Uluru, that there are SO many flies everywhere, it’s the most irritating thing ever!)
Anyways we swiftly found a more suitable bench, ate our picnic dinner and watched as the sun set and Ayers Rock changed from it’s luminous orange to a deep red, then purple, then grey then eventually a dull brown as the sun disappeared.
Here are some of my photos from all of today’s adventures…. (Including some photos using my new gopro!)

Our very steep climb up Ayers Rock:
Uluru is 2831ft high, we didn’t have time to get to the very top but we were so high:
And that concludes our very busy but absolutely incredible tour of Uluru (aka Ayers Rock)!
