I am a rock fan. The most expensive domestic flight I’ve ever done just to visit the rock!

Rising out of the surrounding Central Australian desert, Uluru and Kata Tjuta dominate the landscape. The spectacular red rocks and domes are millions upon millions of years old. You’ll find Uluru and Kata Tjuta about 450 kilometres, or a four and a half hour drive from Alice Springs, the nearest major town.

KAKADU NATIONAL PARK-NOURLANGIE

Burunggui (previously called Nourlangie Rock) is located in an outlying formation of the Arnhem Land Escarpment within the Kakadu National Park which is in the Northern Territory of Australia.  The word Nourlangie derives from the Gundjeihmi language placename Nawurlandja which is actually the name of a smaller rock outcrop at the Anbangbong billabong (wikipedia)

How old is Kakadu’s rock art? Our oldest paintings are up to 20,000 years old.
