Wow, so I was being all nostalgic and looking back at a series of posts from one of the most memorable trips of my life – visiting the澳大利亚北领地188体育直播比分. That’s when I realized I had one more post that I never published from that trip! And it’s the most important one too – you’ll see why in a moment. So without further ado, here is a post on my time visiting Uluru, the famous Red Center, and one of Australia’s most iconic landmarks.
Uluru is special because it is home to many rare plants and animals. It is also an important spiritual site, sacred to the Anagu aboriginal people, with many caves painted with ancient rock arts.
Is it Uluru or Ayers Rock?
You might have seen the name Ayers Rock being used while referring to Uluru. That’s because for many years, Ayers Rockwas官方名称是指这个惊人的岩层。
为什么它叫做Ayers Rock以便开始？为了回答这一点，我们需要回到1800年代。纽伦斯特·吉尔斯（Ernest Giles）是欧洲探险家的欧洲探险家，在澳大利亚中部的一支探险期间获得了欧洲探险家的历史。188体育直播比分一年后，乌鲁鲁在另一个欧洲探险家中威廉·格索斯（William Gosse）在一个单独的探险中再次被审查。然后，GOSSE当时南澳大利亚州南澳大利亚总理爵士爵士，艾尔斯摇滚“。188体育直播比分这个名字陷入了数百年。
However, as we now know of the Australian history, the European explorers did not “find” Uluru, as it has existed for millions of years and had been known to the indigenous Pitjantjatjara / Anangu Aboriginal people for tens of thousands of years. To them, Uluru is not just a monolith rock, it is a sacred site with significant cultural and spiritual meaning, evidenced by the ancient rock paintings that can be seen on the caves in Uluru.
Starting 1993, Uluru was added to the official name which became “Ayers Rock / Uluru”. However in 2002, the naming was reversed to become “Uluru / Ayers Rock”, placing Uluru as the first official name of the rock.
Can you climb Uluru?
从2019年10月开始,它将成为非法的to climb Uluru.所以，如果你在2019年10月之后那么答案很简单 - 你不能按照法律决定的乌鲁鲁。
But for now, while it is not currently illegal at the time of writing this post, climbing Uluru has always been highly discouraged out of respect to the Anangu people, who have specifically spoken out against the climb. This is because the path to the top of Uluru is associated with important Mala ceremonies. The people of Anangu believe that during the time when the world was being formed (referred to as Dreamtime), the path was the traditional route of ancestral Mala men on their arrival at Uluru.
The closest civilization to Uluru is a tiny town called Yulara, and here are ways to get to Yulara:
Yulara by Direct Domestic Flight– Thanks to the great interest and tourism, there is actually an airport in Yulara called Ayers Rock Airport (I guess they never bothered renaming the airport itself). You can find frequent domestic flights from other parts of Australia to this airport – Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Darwin. I flew out to Sydney from this airport! However, there are no international flights.
As I said before, the only civilization near Uluru is in a tiny town called Yulara. In Yulara there are tons of resorts and high-end hotels, but those are out of budget so I stayed atOutback Pioneer Lodge, the only economical accommodation around the area and part of YHA Australia.
Now, things to do in Uluru:
1. Capture Uluru at different times of the day
PS:我通常不会指出这一点，但这是我在所有旅行中最喜欢的照片之一，所以如果你想借它自用，please ask me first并通过链接回到这篇文章给了我信贷.
So how can you see Uluru at different times of the day? If you are not planning to self-drive, there are many tour options you can take:
Tours to see Uluru at Sunrise
- Field of Light Sunrise Tour
- Sunrise or Sunset Uluru Camel Ride Experience– I did this and I LOVED it! More of it below
- Uluru Sunrise Base Walk
Tours to see Uluru at Sunset
2. Visit Yulara Town
Yulara is not a large town by any means. The entire town consists of this one less than the 2km circular road, which you can walk around in under 20 minutes.
在尤拉拉，我建议去iMalung Lookout Point., where you can see Uluru from the top. It’s a very easy walk!
你可以visit the visitor center area for meals, groceries, and some restaurants. They’ll also have some dance performance and light activities scheduled throughout the day.
3. See Uluru at Sunset – Sounds of Silence Dinner under the stars
This is probably one of the most famous activity in Uluru! Sounds of Silence dinner takes you to a private space near Uluru, where you can have wine and hors-d’oeuvres (which included kangaroo meat) while watching Uluru change color as the sun begins to set.
After Sunset, you are then ushered to the dinner area, where white linen round tables are waiting for you. I was traveling alone, so I was seated with a larger group of people. Lucky for me, I got seated with super cool folks – a group of older Australians who are doing a cross-continent bike tour from Melbourne.
沉默的声音是我完成的最令人难忘的活动之一，因为接下来会发生什么。一旦太阳完全落实，你就可以享受繁星之夜天空！既然我们在沙漠中间，没有云，这是一个非常晴朗的夜晚。夜空刚刚充满了白色闪闪发光的星星 - 和行星！我们也能通过望远镜看到木星。对我来说，这是我生命中最偏远的最偏远，我从来没有见过我生命中的许多星星。
Unfortunately, my photography skill was not that great back then and I did not have a tripod with me, so I don’t have any photo evidence of the stars you’ll just have to trust me that it was worth the experience!
That said, the Sounds of Silence is a bit more higher-end option at A$210 per person. If you are looking for something more affordable, you can consider the following sunset tours with optional BBQ after:
- Uluru Base and Sunset Tour– if you want to get up close to Uluru, don’t mind walking and want to stay for sunset, this is the tour for you.
- Uluru Sunset Drive– if you just want to see Uluru at sunset with out the walk, this is the perfect option for you.
4.在日出的乌鲁鲁 - 日出骆驼骑自行车的景色，享有Uluru和Kata Tjuta的景致
This was my first time ever seeing a real camel! Though I later saw (and rode) many more camels on my trip toJordan, I’ll always remember this camel ride as my first-time ever.
在这次旅行中，你在上午5:30开始很早开始，以确保您在日出之前在那里。当我们到达骆驼农场时，骆驼已经在地层中排序。这是因为骆驼在野外工作的方式 - 他们按照骆驼的个性顺序行走。alpha，更自信的骆驼将引导包装，然后在线形成中的其余包。然而，最有信心的骆驼走过去，以保护剩下的捕食者。如果您在线形成的第一个或最后一次或持续分配不太自信的骆驼，可能会导致混乱，他们可能会拒绝走路。
So yeah, that’s why this trip to Uluru was so memorable to me. I’ll never forget the calm and silence as we were riding in formation, and the beautiful colors that kept changing every minute over Uluru and Kata Tjuta.
If you are flying out of the Ayers Rock Airport, you should research ahead of time and see which side of the airplane will Uluru and Kata Tjuta be visible from. I flew out of the airport to Sydney and I sat on the left side of the plane, and to my delight, I was able to snap a couple of last minute photos of the rocks from the plane!
6.访问Kata Tjuta和King's Canyon
悲伤地，在北部领土上留下了我的时间。This post is the fifth (and last) of a series of posts on the amazing time I had in the Australian outback! You can check out'北领地'标签去看更多内地和内地的帖子‘Australia’ tag我将在澳大利亚做的任何职位。188体育直播比分
