Did a 3-day trip to Uluru, Kata Tjuta & Kings Canyon. Last time I visited here was 25 years ago with my family. The sites & facilities have been updated and improved a fair bit since then, with greater emphasis on the sacred sites which I really liked.

The local Anangu people don't like anyone climbing it as it's a sacred site, but that doesn't stop the punters

there are signs & fines for photographing any sacred site, so this is one of the few shots I was able to take at the back of the Rock
