Today is the International Day for Biological Diversity, a day to consider our relationship to the natural world and this year the theme is ‘Our solutions are in nature’. The slogan emphasizes how dependent we are on healthy ecosystems for our own health and welfare. This has probably been particularly relevant this year given our isolation from others, closure of business and leisure opportunities and the complete upheaval of plans we may have had for this year. While we have had to distance ourselves from other human contact, one sanity saver has been the opportunity to get outdoors and into nature to feel some sort of normality by visiting beaches, forests, parks and rivers. I think it has given us all a sense of just how important these natural places are to our mental health for starters, and how lucky we are in Australia to have these places.
The highlight of our last trip away to central Australia, has to be seeing the Field of Light at Uluru. That experience will be one to remember for a long time and gave a different perspective to this desert area and its ethereal beauty. With any visit to the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, I would recommend at the very least three days but preferably longer to give yourself time to take a few of the walks during the day.View the pictures →
