Ayers Rock, Northern Territory, Australia

Arrived in Alice Springs yesterday and toured the old telegraph station, The School of the Air, and Flying Doctors.  We traveled from Alice Springs to Ulura where we visited the Olga's in Tata Tjuta national park and enjoyed a sunset viewing of Uluru.  Today we hiked to a waterhole at the base of Uluru where we saw pictographs and enjoyed the landscape.  We visited the aboriginal cultural center.  We enjoyed watching aboriginal women painting.  Their art has lots of dots which represents the spinifex grass from the air.  Flew from Ayers Rock to Cairns and could see the circular patterns represented in the aboriginal art.
