Comment on Now that the Rock can’t be climbed, visiting it will cost more by Evelyne Roullet.

I am in total agreement with Charlie. As an accredited tour guide for the park I have accompanied a lot tourists of all nationalities and with nearly every tour company.
I never had a demand for climbing Uluru and enjoyed plenty of walks and activities, with each time a different experience.
Doing the full Valley of the Winds walk is more rewarding for the body and soul than climbing Uluru.
Spend some time in the cultural centre, in the visitors centre and learn some biology, botany and geology and especially learn that Uluru is neither a rock or a monolith but an Inselberg, literally “island mountain”.

Uncle Hucklebuck: Top secret. UFO land on the top, there is a tunnel which goes up to Pine Gap.
Once I told this to a tourist who believed me and put it on his blog.

Cr Auricht: All the way with USA on fate of Assange
@ Charlie (sorry mate old age): I am simply asking if the people of Alice should make a petition for Assange? If yes, then the petition should be presented to the council which in turn will present it to the Feds.


Cr Auricht: All the way with USA on fate of Assange
The situation of Assange is terrible, but like John Bell I fail to understand what the council can do about it when there is nothing it can do about the crimes in our town.
Australian politicians are in a position to advocate for Julian Assange and have, thus far, failed to do so. How could our Councillors succeed?
The role of each councillor is to:
• Represent the interests of electors, ratepayers and residents.
• Provide leadership and guidance to the community.
• Facilitate two-way communication between the community and the council; and
• Participate in decision making processes at meetings.
Nothing here indicates it can get involved with Federal decisions.

@ Mecchi: You know it takes two to tango, so unless you speak to the daughter to have her side of the story, you have not the full picture.
