this morning was the helicopter trip to ayers rock. it was a first for me and really good fun. the helicopter can normally seat four passengers and i ended up in the front which gave by far the best views. it was only a 15 minute flight but well worth the aud90 i had to pay. even with a bit of cloud around, the views were spectacular and the actual flying part was extremely interesting. this evening i am going on the sunset tour to the rock itself, which apparently gives good photo ops.
