From Sydney we flew 3 1/2 hours to the heart of the red centre of Australia, the Ayers Rock, the mystical monolith and Holy Mountain of the Aborigines.

The Ayers Rock, is the greatest tourist attraction of Australia and part of the Uluru national park. In the holiday complex "Ayers Rock Resort" is everything organized. From great Camping Ground to a 5 star hotel, everything is represented. Our accommodation was the Outback Pioneer Lodge. The price (US$ 70,-) was to expensive for a 4-Bed-Room with one double-and one stick bed and sanitary rooms in the near camping complex.

In the afternoon, we go by bus with many other tourists to the Olgas, 30 km far away from the Camp. We booked this trip from at home by Internet.

The trips and routs, which were offered by the agency of the Camp are very very touristy and had nothing to do with the felling of wildness and loneliness that we expected here.

We spent 2 days in the Resort, but there was no individuality, everything was in the bulk. But not only the many tourists disturbed our stay but also the million of thick black flies, a special characteristic of the "Outback". Our guided "Liru Tour" with an Aborigine was not the unique cultural experience, too. It was only made for Tourist.

The experience Sunrise and Sunset at the Ayers Rock we thought, it is a unique and singular experience, but nothing at all! We divided it with 50 further bus groups of Tourists from all over the world.

All in all, only the grandiose landscape was an experience.
