Photos of rare beautiful Uluru waterfall revealed
A stunning view in Uluru has gone viral on social media, after the area received an unexpected rainfall this week.
The magnificent moment when the rain fell and created a magnificent waterfall scene in Uluru instantly created an Australian wonder.
While no one wants rain on vacation, especially when visiting one of the country’s natural wonders, the breathtaking scene created by the fall might make you beg for rain on your next trip to the Red Center.
A video shared by Uluá¹u-Kata Tjuá¹¯a National Park Tuesday shows the spectacular scene, with the rock drenched in 22mm of rare rain earlier this week.
Parks Australia said that while the 22mm of rain didn’t seem like much, the annual average precipitation is just under 300mm – so having that amount in an evening is quite significant.
Parks Australia posted the ‘rare and magical’ moment via their Facebook account, but this isn’t the first time a similar moment has been filmed.
In October last year, tourists who stopped in Uluru were treated to a âmagicalâ spectacle, when the rain created a rare series of waterfalls tumbling down the rock.
With 30mm of rain falling in just 24 hours on October 22, parts of the Top End – including Uluru – experienced puddles in the heaviest downpour the region has seen in three years.
In the park’s most recent video, a choir of burrowing frogs can be heard singing as the rain falls.
The post explained that the reptiles called “profusely” after enough rain had fallen to encourage them to come out of their burrows, especially at dawn and dusk.
âThey keep calling for the next day or so, especially early in the morning and at dusk. “As the water persists, you can see them in the waterholes during the day, but as soon as it starts to dry out, they disappear again underground, waiting for the next downpour,” we read in the message.
In 2020, Uluru was named one of the top destinations to visit in Lonely Planet’s new âUltimate Travel Listâ.
As part of the prestigious list, the writers of the globally acclaimed publication have traveled the planet – by proxy – to the destinations they look forward to when international travel resumes.
With writers voting on their favorite travel memories, they narrowed down hundreds of votes to 500 experiences and 320 travel pages.
While hundreds of places have been listed – Australia has not been lacking – with Uluru as the third must-see site in the world.
