How can I bring costs down without compromising on comfort? The best thing you can do is accept that Uluru is in the middle of the desert – nothing is going to be a bargain. This will do wonders for your comfort levels! Aside from that, the biggest cost reduction you can make is to stay at a roadhouse such as Curtin Spring Cattle Station… although it’s a lot further away from Uluru and won’t be quite as comfortably appointed. Is there anything else I should see out here, other than Uluru? Indigenous culture deems this another deeply sacred location, and understandably – the 36 mountainous peaks, which you can wander through via the seven-and-a-half- kilometre-long Valley of the Winds walk, make for an awesomely imposing natural wonder. It is arguably more breathtaking than Uluru; and at least as beautiful. Is it better to hire a car, or join the tours? A good guide will be priceless to your time here but having your own car will allow you to visit each icon without time pressures. Ideally, you’d hire a car and also take a tour. AAT Kings coach tours are a solid, reliable option What sort of distances are we talking here? From Ayers Rock Resort, it is six kilometres (10 minutes) to Ayers Rock Airport, 20 kilometres (30 minutes) to Uluru and, in the opposite direction from Uluru, 53 kilometres (50 minutes) to Kata Tjuta. What’s the best time of day to visit Uluru?

The classic response would be sunrise or sunset, but don’t let that stop you from coming at any other time of day. Uluru has a different look and feel each hour, and the more time you spend interacting with the area, the more you’ll appreciate it. How long should i spend out here? At Uluru itself, two nights is sufficient if you’re on a tight schedule, but three will give you enough time to stop, have at least one sleep in, get a proper feel for the area and visit the actual rock more than once. Is Uluru at Alice springs… or isn’t it? No – though this is a common misconception. Uluru is a five-hour drive south west of Alice Springs, so if you want to fly directly to Uluru, book your flights to Ayers Rock Airport (also known as Connellan Airport) in Yulara. Any essentials I need to bring? Aside from sunscreen, a hat, comfortable walking shoes and sunglasses? Not really – but be prepared to buy a fly net. They’re not necessary all the time, but when you need one, you really need one. You can find them at roadside stores for just a few dollars or at Ayers Rock Resort for a few more. It’s also worth noting that the red dirt gets into everything, and doesn’t always come out, so don’t wear white and a dustpan and brush in the car is helpful. Part C – Written or Oral Questions 1. How did you and your partner communicate on your respective roles/responsibilities in regard to the presentation?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
