Great Places To Visit - Uluru, Yulara Resort, N.T. Australia

 Well I don't think there is a more spectacular place to visit in Australia than Uluru.  We have visited before and will no doubt visit again.  We stayed with our caravan for a week in the camping grounds of the Yulara Resort near Uluru. Very good spot. The Yulara Resort shopping precinct is excellent for tourist. Plenty of things to purchase.  There is also a very good IGA supermarket, one of the best we have seen in a remote area.   The purpose of coming here of course is to see "The Rock".  Well I've now had the fun of seeing it in all kinds of light at many different times of day. Of course I did the obligatory sunrise and sunset, that's what I really came for and also to walk around the base.  We did this over a number of days so I could stroll along and take numerous photos. Wonderful time spent is all I can say. So worth the long trek up here with the caravan.  As it was April (2021) when we arrived it was fairly quiet. We booked in at the office for 1 week

Great Places To Visit - Melbourne, Victoria, Australia - Global Ballooning Australia - Sunrise Flight

Took a fantastic sunrise flight over Melbourne this morning under the guidance and care of pilot Steve Buckley from Global Ballooning Australia. Wonderful experience. Steve took good care of the 10 of us on his flight and kept us informed of what was expected, what was happening next, and what to look for on the flight. He also carefully explained safety procedures and landing instructions confirming that everyone understood what was explained. The experience was amazing. The weather was perfect for flying with the sun rising serenely as we drifted towards Melbourne City.  The flight lasted for about 1hr and we landed safely at Essendon Airport. Those who wanted participated in the unpacking and packing up of the balloon which was great fun. Wonderful experience, great flight, felt safe at all times. Would recommend Global Ballooning Australia, and pilot Steve Buckley.
