Australia and New Zealand Trip: Part 6 (Ayers Rock in the Outback)
During our stay in the Australian Outback, Tal and I spent 1.5 hours hiking around parts of Ayers Rock on Good Friday (April 14). Ayers Rock is a large sandstone rock formation that is 1,100 feet high and nearly 6 miles around. It is situated in a barren area in the center of Australia (and about 30 min from our hotel). Tal and I enjoyed getting an up close view of one of Australia's impressive natural landmarks!

After hiking at Ayers Rock, Tal and I were hot and dusty. We put on our swimming suits and went to the hotel pool to cool off, but the water was too cold!
