Charmed by Australia with Nature and Spirits from Ancient Times

Uluru in Australia

Uluru in Australia

Australia has wonderful Mother Nature. For instance, the Great Barrier Reef, Gondwana Rainforest, Willandra Lakes Region, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, and so on.

A friend of mine who has been to Australia said, "I am surprised at the large-scale Nature in Australia. It is completely different from Japan."

I am interested in the wonderful Nature in Australia. I would like to feel the overwhelming power of Nature, if I go there.

By the way, among nature there are many ruins from ancient times, like the Aboriginal wall paintings. For example, on the huge monolithic rock "Uluru," more commonly known as "Ayers Rock", a lot of Aboriginal paintings remain. Uluru has been an Aboriginal sacred place until now.

Another friend of mine said, "When I climbed Uluru several years ago (now climbing Uluru is subject to restriction), I felt like I was staying in another dimensional world. There is something unusual in that place." Did she touch the sensation of "Dream Time"?

Dream time is an Aboriginal mythological age. I am charmed with Australia that has both Nature and Spirits from ancient times.

Beautiful Uluru, an example of Australia's natural beauty
by: Gary Wolff

Thanks, Mika, for your nice story about Uluru in Australia.

I agree with you that Australia seems to have many examples of beautiful nature and spirits from ancient times.

If and when I can travel to Australia some day, I hope I can visit Uluru and possibly climb it !

Thanks again for your great story...

Gary
