Kings Canyon is located between Uluru and Alice Springs.  It is outside of the Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park (where you find Uluru and Kata-Tjuta (the Olgas),) and is a 3.5-hour drive from Uluru.  It is a lesser known tourist attraction but many tourists who see ‘the big three’ (Uluru, Kata-Tjuta and Kings Canyon) will say […]

Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) is situated within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and located about 30kms from Uluru (Ayers Rock).  Kata Tjuta means ‘many heads’.  It is believed these ‘heads’ were once all one formation, however, through weathering, today Kata-Tjuta is made up of 36 boulders.  These boulders consist of a conglomerate of basalt and […]

Ayres Rock Resort is not a resort.  It is an area made up of many types of accommodation including a very large campground, apartments and hotels.  While that provides a broad range of options, every option is owned by the same company, Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia, creating a monopolistic situation.  Voyages is based in Sydney […]

It’s hot at Uluru in January.  That’s why sensible Aussies visit in the cooler months.  We were there mostly with tourists from the Northern Hemisphere wishing to escape the depths of their winter for a warmer climate.  They can tick the achievement box on that one.

We knew the day was coming but that hasn’t made the loss any less bearable. Well done to my sweet Rosie who gave us every day of her nearly 17-years of life. One of Ruby’s six puppies and the runt of the litter, Rosie had a sweetness, a fragility, and an innocence that was so […]

The following words don’t come with any guarantee but I promise this will be your best possible chance of fast-tracking a passport. Sydney’s passport office offers an express service where you pay an emergency fee of $178 (burglary) on top of $282 (highway robbery) for the cost of a passport.  That’s pretty much the first $500 […]

The events of the last 24-hours have confirmed to me that I am an amateur/novice traveller. An amateur can further compound their limited knowledge/experience by travelling on Friday the 13th.  Don’t do that. Organising an extended family holiday to celebrate my father’s milestone 80th birthday has been about a year in the making.  Many ports […]
