NSW/ACT – Day #3 & 4

We haven’t heard much from NSW and ACT – they’ve been squirrelled away somewhere that phone reception dares to tread. But having an amazing time all the same. They’ll be arriving at Uluru tomorrow, a day later than everyone else, so let’s check in with what they’ve been up to!

NSW & ACT Day #1 & 2

  Another team up, but this one makes a bit more sense. Regional NSW and Canberra got together to form a bus all their own, and on Sunday headed into the wild!

NSW/ACT – Day 11

A few of the buses arrived home last night – so the Tasmanians, Victorians, and Western Sydney-ans all woke up in their own cosy beds last night. So spare a thought for the two buses still on the road. Still waking up in freezing cold tents, travelling in a bus that must smell pretty funky…

NSW/ACT – Day 9 & 10

Day 9. We headed out to stay a night at Kings Creek station. We were all looking forward to being able to swim in the pool there. Unfortunately the pool was being repaired and this meant that we weren’t able to swim. So we made use of a nearby sprinkler to cool off and play…

Pilgrim Life #4 – In Which We Get To The Fun Bit.

That title is not meant to suggest that the rest of the Pilgrimage has not been fun. Don’t ever believe that these guys haven’t had their fill of fun by this point. But what do you do when you’ve had your fill? Is there a limit? Can you only have so much? Yes. There is…

Pilgrim Life #3 – In Which We Finally Do What We All Came Here For.

The Rock. Uluru. The big red thing in the sand over there. A hugely significant cultural site for all Australians. And the Pilgrims finally get to see it up close.

NSW/ACT – Day 8

We woke up early in the morning to see the sunrise on Uluru. It was spectacular, but also sad as we said goodbye to the other buses and sent them off on the long journey home.  

NSW/ACT – Day 7

We woke up to some delicious pancakes and went to the base of Uluru.

NSW/ACT – Day 6

This morning we left Coober Pedey bright and early to head for our destination: Uluru! There was great excitement when the massive red rock was spotted far out on the horizon. We arrived at Yulara Resort at 4pm and were welcomed in the the amphitheater by the base camp team. We painted our hand prints…
