Artist's Description

Only 1% of people ever get to see Uluru in the rain. We were preparing to head back to Alice Springs when we realized it was going to rain so we turned aroung and went back out to the rock so we could be part of this great spectacle. Not only did we get to see Uluru in the rain, but we also got to witness the spectacular waterfalls flowing offit. By the time we had driven around the rock taking pictures, the rain had stopped & the waterfalls stopped flowing within minutes. It made us appreciate how truely special this moment was.
Uluru is the Aboriginal name for Ayres Rock and that is what it is now known as.It is also a very sacred site. It is in the centre of Australia in the middle of the desert, so this is a very rare sight. It is the largest monolith in the Southern Hemisphere. It is located in the centre of Australia, in the Northern Territory.

The song “It’s raining on the Rock” by John Williamson says it all.

Pastel red to burgundy and spinifex to gold,
We’ve just come out of the Mulga where the plains forever roll.
And Albert Namatjira has painted all the scenes,
And a shower has changed the lustre of our land.

And it’s raining on the Rock,
In a beautiful country,
And I’m proud to travel this big land,
As an Aborigine.
And it’s raining on the Rock
What an almighty sight to see,
And I’m wishing and I’m dreaming that you were here with me.

Everlasting daisies and a beautiful desert rose
Where does their beauty come from heaven knows.
I could ask the wedge-tail but he’s away too high,
I wonder if he understands it’s wonderful to fly.

It cannot be described with a picture,
The mesmerising colours of the Olgas.
Or the grandeur of the Rock
Uluru has power!

And it’s raining on the Rock,
In a beautiful country,
And I’m proud to travel this big land,
As an Aborigine.
And it’s raining on the Rock
What an almighty sight to see,
And I’m wishing and I’m dreaming that you were here with me.
