Really would like to see rain on Uluru. Missed it by one day in 2009. ("You should have been here yesterday"!) All we got for 4 days was cloud cover.
Great pic.

If you are talking about the Christmas cyclone in 2009, you must have been one day behind us.
We got the CT blown around a bit in the storm, and had to pack it up late at night in the "eye", than sleep in the car for the rest of the night.
Spectacular views of the rock with torrentail rain falling all over it.
Some of the shopkeepers said it wasn't an extremely rare event.
Didn't make the roads impassable the following day, so all was good.
Cheers
I'll get there someday, or die wanting to.

Nah, it was in June 09. I believe it is a fairly regular event but you just have to be lucky to catch it. Ah well, one day.........

Keep an eye on this website, it doesn't run to Saturday yet...

This one does however......

Just remember the further ahead the forecast the less the accuracy....
