Visiting Uluru for the first time is one of our favourite memories from our 18-month road trip around Australia. It took me 42 years to visit the spiritual home of the Australian Outback, and it was everything I had envisioned.
I have seen hundreds of postcards and TV commercials of Uluru over the years, but nothing compares to witnessing it with your own eyes. And it’s not just a visual experience, but an emotional one. “The Rock” formerly known as Ayers Rock, has been a very spiritual place to the traditional aboriginal owners for thousands of years.
When I first started traveling overseas way back in 1994 I used to collect postcards, not only to write on but because I liked looking at travel photos for inspiration and they were easy to bring home as souvenirs.
Today I shoot my own photos and below are my favourite photographs (postcards) from our visit to Uluru in the heart of the Australian Outback.
Don’t just visit for a day, there are many ways to take in the sights of Uluru:
