The family headed out to the red heart of Australia to take in the sights of Uluru, Kata Tjuta and that expansive night sky. When we first arrived at the resort it was a hot one, 46 degrees and it felt it. We should feel hot out there though, so this was the right welcome.

Staying at the Sails in the Desert we did a few organised activities that included:

  • the sounds of silence dinner out in the desert.
  • a sunset tour or Kata Tjuta which started during the day but then turned into great spectacle as the thunder storm weaved around us.
  • a sunrise tour around Uluru and several of its sacred sights.
  • plus a little look at some of the wonders of the night sky through binoculars and a telescope (which brought back fond memories)
Here are a few more pics that show off these iconic locations.
