Uluru and Kata Tjuta by helicopter!

Our adventure for today is flight by helicopter over Uluru and Kata Tjuta.

Another perfect day here in the “centre” and Ulura takes on another persona from above as the geological origin of the rock being pushed or bubbled up by moving fault lines and flopping over on its side becomes clearly apparent.  We are told that one end of Uluru is 50 million years older than its other end!

Then the helicopter turns with Kata Tjuta in sight – another wonder of geological phenomena and the jumbled formation which we have been gazing at from afar is now racing toward us.

Kata Tjuta has long been the site of Aboriginal Men’s Business – tribal law has never permitted women to set foot on Kata Tjuta.  It is a mysterious and ancient place – there is a strong sense of this even from above.
