I Still Call Australia Home
Night Owl's Country
Aborigines have the longest continuous cultural history of any group of
people on Earth - dating back- by some estimates - 65,000 years.

Let's begin with the world's biggest monolith.
Ayers Rock now called Uluru in the heart of Australia.
It is 9.4km around it, and about 345 metres high, and 3.6km long, 2km wide,
and is roughly oval in shape.
It is renowned for the way it changes colour in the light and is particularly
spectacular at sunrise and sunset
The colours "are true" - we could not believe it until we had seen it for ourselves.
The Wombat is a night time creature and burrows anywhere and everywhere.
They roam freely where we have our caravan - and don't we know it - we have
to clean up their droppings each time we go up to stay.
They are grass eating animals so what they leave for us is GREEN -ugh
The Dingo - mostly wild, a few *brave* people have them as friends.
The howl of a dingo at night is awesome.
I have included the link if you wish to view - it is very quick to open and, each
State link takes you to their floral emblem.
Well worth the extra click or two
