The morning welcomed us with rain and clouds which is not bad because we are leaving
We tidied up the car interiors, emptied the tank wirh used water and the toilet water, filled up the Diesel and returned our motorHOME.
A 1:45h flight to hot Alice Springs seemed short.
Again sun, hot and dry air and the dezert. The airport is small and cozy. After 2h waiting time we took off to the middle of nowhere: Yulara airport in the Uluru National Park.
Red earth everywhere. We just checked-in and are planning the next 3 days.
See you later.
Emilka's quick power nap and we went to the town center eat dinner and do some shopping.
Yulara is a tiny resort, an oasis on this outback desert. There are a few hotels of different class: luxury down to lower middle + camping grounds. There is a free of charge shuttle driving people around the resort, coming every 15 min. There are a few restaurants, a supermarket and some souvenir shops. There is also a visitor centre, where one can find out about the place.
Yulara lies some 20-25 min away from Uluru (Ayers Rock) and 50 min from Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) - two of the main places attracting people coming over from so far away.
Next day we will be visiting those places.
