    The lack of light pollution around Uluru in the Australian Outback means it's one of the clearest places in the world to see an astonishing amount of stars in the sky at night. Grab a swag (outdoor sleeping bag) and a bottle of bubbly - or book a room in one of the nearby luxury hotels - for an unforgettable location to pop the question.

    One of the most recognizable natural wonders of the world. Chose not to climb. Instead, I completed the 12km trek around the base. Although the trail is flat, during a heat wave it was quite a challenge.

    Truly one of Gods greatest creations. ONE giant rock in the middle of a dessert. It's a breath taking sight and you must watch the rock from a distance as it changes colors in the sunset. BEAUTIFUL!

    Got past "Chicken Rock" but couldn't believe there was nothing to hold onto after that. LOL

Description

Spreading across several Australian states, the Outback is, in a word, vast. We're talking seriously big. If you want to drive out here, bring your own water for days and extra fuel. Understandably, most people fly in. (For the journey of a lifetime, take the two-night Ghan train from Adelaide through Alice Springs to Darwin.) As one of the most mystical sights in the world, Uluru (Ayers Rock) is truly spectacular. The red rock, a solitary remnant from a long-gone mountain chain, plays a large part in the mythology of the local Aborigine people. Take a tour with a local and find out the history of this sacred place. The nearby town of Alice Springs is the tourist hub for the Outback with an airport, several nature centers, restaurants and a selection of Aboriginal art galleries. Take a detour to the opal mining town of Coober Pedy, where the incessant heat drove residents to create an underground city. Stay in a cave hotel, tour the underground Catholic and Serbian Orthodox churches ... read more
and buy a few opals.
