We did The Rock Tour 14 months after my Achilles Tendon had snapped off. I had only been off the crutches 5 months at this stage. I was lacking strength and was still limping regularly. I found this 3 day tour out to Ayers Rock which was only $270 for three days. This included transport, breakfast & dinner & guided tours of 3 amazing hikes:
- Kings Canyon
- The Olgas
- Ayers Rock
The Rock Tour
For the price this was an absolute bargain. This tour attracted young backpackers, and Serena & I were amongst the oldest in the group. We all loaded onto a tightly packed small tour bus, and there were people from all around the globe. Serena & I were the odd ones out as we were the only Australians on the tour.
It never ceases to amaze me how many Australians will readily travel to places like Fiji and Bali. Yet so few have traveled to the Red centre. This was going to be an epic journey for me, and I will be testing my physical limitations with a dodgy Achilles, and trying to keep Serena happy. This tour was my cup of tea, but Serena wasn’t so enthusiastic.
