We initially visited the Olgas on Thurs 24th, with Nikki and family, during their weeks holiday to central Aus (see A Week with Friends). We returned for a second visit this Wed (30/7), so I’ll write this blog post first (of the Uluru related posts) given they are fresh in my memory! The Olgas are a pretty awesome looking group of rocks about 45 km’s drive from Uluru. In many ways they are more interesting than Uluru, but perhaps a little less imposing.
There are heaps of photos so I’ll break it up into a few sections: First up, some general and sunset shots of The Olgas. Followed by photos from the 7.4km Valley of the Winds walk we did Wed arvo, which has some pretty awesome views (pity you missed this one Nikki). It must get real hot out here in summer – this walk is full of warnings about heat and water, and closure on hot days, and there are a couple of water drinking stations to which they must truck/4wd in water! Even in mid winter it was warm and we drank plenty.
Finally we’ll go back to last Thurs (24th) when we did the Walpa Gorge walk with Nikki, Ava and Scarlett. A less exciting walk, but still great and good for some fun photography.

A video might help capture this lookout, though I need to improve my videography skills!! It’s uploaded in full HD if you don’t mind the bandwidth and want to see the details….
