Uluru, Australia

Uluṟu

The sheer size of this magnificent rock is the first thing i notice. It’s hard to imagine that Uluṟu (a natural structure also known as Ayers Rock) is taller than the Eiffel Tower.IMG_1391                                        IMG_1389

The forever changing colours and texture of Uluṟu will take you by surprise. Depending on the time of day you visit and what light is reflecting off it, you will find many shades of red, orange and brown.

Uluṟu has a powerful and magnetic energy –  the experience is unlike anything I have encountered on my travels.

The traditional owners of Uluṟu (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuṯa  (The Olgas) and the land surrounding it are The Aṉangu (Aboriginals). They’ve been here for tens of thousands of years and have always known this to be a very special place. Who would have known that such a spiritual place existed in our own backyard?
