The real Australian experience is when you go visit the Outback in Central Australia and it’s most famous rock the Uluru (also called Ayers rock). Uluru is the name that should be used as this is sacred to the Aboriginals, the indigenous people of Australia.
In this Area there are other rock formations like “Kata Tjuta” and Mount Conner.
I was here on a 4 day camp trip with a group of people from all kind of nationalities and had a good time. From preparing your own food, to go out, find and collect wood to start the fire at night when we go sleep in our swags around the campfire under the stars, it makes the outback experience complete. You might hear some Dingo’s at night 🙂
During the day hiking and exploring the beauty of nature here is the best you can do and let it all sink in. I went on this trip with Mulgas Adventure Travel so go and check out their webpage for a great Outback experience. During the many hikes the guide tells you a little about the history of the place, its indigenous people and about the fauna and flora.
I didn’t visit Mount Conner, I saw it from a distance, just like Uluru it stands out alone in the middle of a flat area. Instead I visited Kings Canyon that was on the itinerary.
At Kings Canyon, you can do the Canyon rim walk, descending the stair case through the garden of Eden to have a break at Kings Creek.
