Uluru Road Trip


Over the last few years I have planned to travel to Uluru (Northern Territory, Australia) and then those plans have failed reach reality, for a whole bunch of reasons. Now I am planning yet another road trip to Uluru for later this year. I have been before, as part of a much larger trip through the Top End of Australia in 1998, but the time I had available at Uluru was limited to just the one day. This time I am planning a stay of a bit longer than that. So nothing too much to report on the actual planned trip at this stage, except to say that it does appear to be definitely on this time round.
