Uluru - join us in the heart Centre of our amazing land of Australia
We will be guests of Bob Randall, an Anangu elder, storyteller and songwriter who lives at Mutitjulu community as the base of Uluru. Bob was 1999 Indigenous person of the Year and his song "My Brown Skin Baby They Take Him Away" is more popular now than 40 years ago and is often used as the theme song for the Stolen generation. The ABC published a book about Bob called "Songman", which is an excellent read. We will experience a day on the land with Bob and his relatives learning about local culture, bush tucker and medicines. A unique opportunity to exchange ideas and interact with local people and see how they survive in this harsh environment, Depending on the season visiting, you could experience eating witchetty grubs, bush lollies or honey ants, or drinking bush lemonade etc.
We will walk around the base of Uluru listening to stories of the dreamtime and visiting rock art sites, waterholes and being shown the different aspects of this amazing place. Also walk the Valley of the Winds and Olga Gorge walks at Kata Tjuta, visit the cultural centre and experience a sunset BBQ with views of both Uluru and Kata Tjuta. We stay in self contained cabins at the Yulara resort and geoff will be our guide with his experience as ranger , tour guide and night sky guide for Sounds of Silence several years ago. There will also be time off for camel rides, scenic flights, Harley rides, shopping at the galleries or swims in the many pools at the resort.
