Travel to the Australian Red Centre

Uluru, Ayers Rock Resorts, Kata Tjuta, Sounds of Silence, Kings Canyon


Aussie desert What is the worst time to visit the Australian Red Centre? Christmas and January?

Why? Cos it's the middle of bloody hot summer down here!

When did I go there? Naturally in January.

Why?

Because "mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun". I'm neither, but I wanted to have a full-on experience. Sydney had been rather cold those months, hardly reaching 30 degrees (Celsius, again and +30, not -30 as you would in parts of Europe). Besides, it's a good Aussie tradition that we go on a longish holiday over the Christmas time and well into January.

It was rather warm there indeed: +46C during the day and +32C at night. The life of a commercial tourist in the Outback goes between comfortably air-conditioned resorts and coaches, and scorching dry time in the open.

We stayed at the Outback Pioneer Resort, which has more original Aussie feel to it. The whole Ayers Rock resort is one big tourist venture run by the Voyages. There is a shuttle bus doing reglar round trips to the resorts and the shopping centre. All organised, all comfortable. Even the mobile coverage (cell phone, my norhtern friends) is perfect.

The Outback Resort has quite a few entertaining bits to it, there's live music every night, the food has quite a few exotic options. We have tried, and really enjoyed, kangaroo meet, crocodile, emu, camel, as well as good Aussie steaks on a barbie. Barbie is short for a barbecue down here, you kinky minds.

This year the outback had a bit of rain and was supprisingly green.

One of the most memorable experiences was a dinner in the desert, callled the "Sounds of Silence". The sky that night was most unusual for January, covered with masses of little clouds - see photos below. The "venue" of the dinner is located in such a point that you can see both the Uluru and the Kata Tjuta. We were lucky to be there at the time when the sun was setting right behind Kata Tjuta. Combined with the little clouds, this gave us unforgettably spectacular scenes. Again, the proof is in the pudding below.
