Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park
What can I say about Uluru, Anangu land…just AMAZING! What a magical place full of beauty, culture, colour and energy.
This trip to Uluru has reawakened my love and connection to the earth. I grew up with nature all around me and this trip has ignited my love of the land. But of course this is Uluru, so the energy of this magic land is so palpable. Did you know Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is internationally recognised as a World Heritage Area for both cultural and natural values? I will be returning!

Being in this magical place you gotta wake up and experience the amazing sunrises. So our first day (morning) was to walk around the base of the rock. We were in a small group of 6 people with a guide to talk us through the cultural heritage. This is a huge rock with significant meaning, so it had taken about 7 hours to complete. There were many stages along the way where we couldn’t film or take photos due to sacred ground, either men’s or women’s business. I felt blessed to be able to see, hear and feel these sacred spots filled with so much culture.
Not only did I love my experience of Uluru, the people, we also learned so much about The First Australians. I could write and write about my experience, but I wanted to keep it short and sweet…
On my return to Melbourne I began researching and learning more about white colonisation and the atrocities that had happened and how this is so raw in families. Want to learn more about The First Australians just do a Google search; you will find many, many learnings.
Food for inspiration
This trip has really got my juices flowing! I’m inspired to get back in my home recording studio and begin writing and recording some new material. I have a few goals over the summer and I can’t wait to share these projects with you. Life for me is about getting out there, doing something different and continue to learn and learn.
If you’re interested in the music you might be interested in my debut album Radiant Creation. At the moment this album is as close to my expression of my experience of nature. You can listen and purchase all music on my online music store.
