Voice of Travelers to Ayers Rock

Retreat to Ayer's Rock

We planned this retreat with my yoga partners last year. It is believed that Ayer's rock in Australia has magical powers to restore spiritual strength. The first thing was to get our air ticket by Virgin Australia airlines. We used cheap airfare who offered a discount on your ticket. The trip was magical and just as we expected. The aura and the energy of the Ayer's Rock was healing in it's own natural way. No One wanted to get the return ticket home. If possible we would build our houses and move into Ayer's Rock just to catch the daily beautiful sunsets. I will be getting my ticket back to this magical place.

First time in Australia

Hi my name is Nancy. I had traveled to all continents in the world just Australia. When the opportunity came to visit I was way too excited. We were to stay in Ayers rock resort with my colleagues from the office. I packed my bags grabbed my air ticket and was ready to hit the airport. After a couple of hours we finally arrived at Ayer's Rock. It was in the evening so we caught the beautiful sunset from the view from our resort in Ayer's Rock resort. The next day we got your ticket to different tourist attraction sites within the area such as camel express and Uluru hiking expeditions. We were so exhausted on the flight back. We got our return ticket by Jetstar airlines.
