    Rocks of the area

    Favorite thing: Hiking around the uluru area, either get used to aussie mozzies buzzing around your face or be armed with a face fly-net. These were being sold everywhere for A$5. They came over your head in a green net like form with an elastic band around your neck, very much like the "nettified" version of al-qaida suicide bombers.

    Fondest memory: I loved taking photographs in Uluru and its surrounding areas. The colour contrast of blue skies against various shades of red was fascinating.

    Favorite thing: There are also many caves to explore at the base of the rock and if you happen to see the rock on a rare rainy day, you will see hundreds of waterfalls that flow down the unusual groves in the side of the monolith.

    Favorite thing: Uluru rises 348 m (1,142 ft) from the desert floor and has a circumference of about 9 km (6 mi). Made of arkosic sandstone, Uluru is spectacular at sunset, when its colour appears to change from red to purple. About 70 million years ago it was an island in a large lake.
