Australian writer drives to famous sandstone formation
Travellers planning adventure holidays to the Antipodes could spend many 'days' just in the area around Uluru, or Ayers Rock, according to an Australian writer.
Julie Fison, a travel writer and children's author known for her Hazard River collection of kids' books, wrote that there is a lot to do around the vast sandstone formation.
"We have no trouble filling in three days at the national park: exploring the wave-shaped caves at the base of Uluru ... and going trigger-happy trying to capture the ultimate sunrise-over-the-rock photo," she stated in The Australian newspaper.
"The cultural centre is also worth a visit for information on the local area and the significance of Uluru."
Ms Fison drove to Uluru, but there are many different ways of approaching the UNESCO World Heritage Site, including hiking.
Uluru's national park is also home to Kata Tjutu (or The Olgas), a group of large domed rock formations which Ms Fison says are "equally impressive", when compared to their neighbour.
