Uluru’s 1%

By |2014-04-09T18:30:23+00:00Apr 9th, 2014|
In the wake of the unprecedented amount of rainfall we experienced in Uuru and Yulara over the past few days, it turns out that this Topdeck Travel crew managed to experience an occurrence that less than 1% of all visitors ever get to see: a flowing waterfall at the Mutitjulu Waterhole. Coincidentally, the local news station here covered this rare occurrence, which is where my stat is sourced from. While it may not compare to the gushing waterfalls of the US’s Pacific Northwest, it was truly wonderful to witness this for myself. Thanks to the Uluru National Parks ranger who kindly kept a warm of other tour groups at bay, minimizing any vibrations from the metal grated floor!

Sadly, today marks the last day of our epic Australian adventure, although a small group of us are staying back in Sydney through Sunday for extended play!

    the colour of the water makes me think it is a really mineral rich wash coming off the rock. Like the glacial lakes in the Rockies that are blue green at times.

    The waterfalls of Uluru are something I remember from our visit. Along with the sounds of the frogs and the deep purple colour of the wet rock.. Its such an amazing place to visit.

    Yep, rare indeed! It doesn’t rain much up in the red centre.I love the green foliage peeking out of the rocks. Quite a dramatic contrast between that and the brown and blue …
