wow how fantastic!

Uluru drenched by first significant rainfall in three years

How briliant! You have no idea how beautiful it is after it rains... Lake Eyre after the drought flourished into a central oasis!

I wish I could embed the video but it is from abc news so isn't giving me direct link.

Uluru is so beautiful anyway but with the waterfalls!! OMG...

just spectacular.

And in just a few weeks, Central Australia will be adorned by carpets of rare flowers, some of the most amazing scenes are yet to come.

S&F

Glad to hear the drought is letting up. We had a drought oddly enough, lasted about three years, then gave way to good rains last hear, and so far, this year. Now the Mid west is dry, where they had flooding over the past years. I guess the cycles are everywhere.

This is how the Indigenous Peoples' describe the landscape after it rains; using Tula dots to indicate travels and the colors indicate the flowers and vegetation.

Magnificent !

Wonderful work, lovely artistry! Wonderful photos, well done!

Of course for Australians this is a wonderful, joyful time!

Visitors however should note that some of our native species enjoy the wet as well. Our snakes swim and are best avoided. Crocodiles love the water and the awesome sneak attacks that are possible when the rains come. Dingoes also play well and are not much of an issue but the spiders and such like, all have to find dry ground and it can get crowded sometimes.

Of course this is all good fun for us because we know and love our country but yea mate, visitors need a little situational awareness. Drop bears are generally not an issue, they don't like the water much and prefer to stay up in the tree tops.

Oh yeah you got to watch out for them drop bears alright! They might stay up there but they get a little hungry and drop down without warning!

lol yes... I was at Pichi Richi Old Willows Restaurant years ago for a Xmas work function and I went outside for a cigarette and was sitting on this bench...after a while I decided to walk to the edge of this little water bank. I turned around and was looking around and up and I saw right above the bench in a tree one of these babies:



And they do drop down


Anyway, everyone else that came out of the door to the area where I was... LOL sat down on the bench and I was like... "Come over here" ... and pointed upwards. LMAO... I have never seen grown men run as fast as I did that night.

yeah!!


My Son goes out hunting for goats in that area sometimes and he is walking through webs that are as thick as string! AND he has walked through webs and thrown spiders as big as his had away... LOL

There is no way in hell, I would go out bush walking at night, that is for sure!

Anyway, I would love to go up to Uluru soon, pack my van, take my dog and head up that way...can't though at the moment so have to fantasize about it instead.
