Yalara is made up of approx 1,000 permanent residents; of which about 300 are indigenous who live in a small community on the edge of Uluru and the rest are employees of Ayers Rock Resort and it’s servicing businesses. During peak season it caters for an additional 6,000 visitors per night, making it almost totally a tourist town.
Visiting Uluru and Kata Tjuta has been a fabulous experience and a highlight of the trip so far.
It has been pretty chilly since we arrived and the strong cold winds have closed climbing of the rock – except for a few hours this morning.

Sunset tonight was a bit of a fizzog – there was no clouds or colourful skies but we braved the cold and joined the crowds to get a good view anyway.
What a wonderful and unique part of the world. Great photos.

Yes it certainly is. Very glad to be here at last.
Beautiful. Take me back!
It really is amazing.
It’s fabulous regardless of the sunset. Rained for us and the trickles glistened in the light.
Always something unusual as you travel around.
Great pictures now watching Eagles go go eagles
We did not have tv or internet reception at Kings Canyon so have just watched the game on our iPad. Great win!
