An early start to the day
We have been told not to travel at Dawn or Dusk as there are no fences along the sides of the roads and sometimes cattle can be on the road. We saw lots of signs warning us about wandering cattle and saw many dead kangaroos and cows. Along the road their were lots of Grids, these gave us a fright the first twenty times that we hit them but eventually we got used to them. The Cattle Stations have no fences along the sides of the roads and the grids are used to stop the cattle from crossing into another station. We stopped at Cadney homestead for a cup of coffee but the Coffee machine was broken, we had a quick toilet stop and we hit the road. We played I-Spy but we discovered that there wasn't many different things to "Spy" as it is pretty much the same flat country side along the whole seven hour drive. There were salt bushes, dead trees, road signs, grids, burnt out cars and road trains. These road trains gave us a fright and made the car shake when they flew past, one nearly sucked the mirror of dads car, we fixed it with duct tape, Dad said it will never move now.
Road Train carrying a Truck for the Mines
The Truck on the back was as wide as the road.
This Trailer had Two Trucks Pulling it
The Police made us pull off the road to let this truck through.
Dad gave the Driver the Wave.
And over the top of us it goes
As we got closer to Yulara we finally saw Uluru and we were all very excited and took lots of photos, we arrived at Yulara resort and we were all very tired but excited to be staying for 4 nights.
Finally the Rock appeared
