the rock / the big red rock
Uluru, formerly known as Ayer's Rock

That big red rock in the middle of Australia all the tourists want to visit. If Australia has a physical heart, Uluru is it.


The western reds are the big ones. Like that one in that appalling movie Kangaroo Jack, which incidentally was not an Australian movie. It was just filmed here by some bloody Hollywood crowd. The grey kangaroos are either eastern greys (smaller) or wallabies (smaller than eastern greys).

Returned and Services League

Formed during World War I "to perpetuate the close ties of friendship created by mutual service in the Australian Defence Force or allied forces, to maintain a proper standard of dignity and honour among all past and present serving members of the Defence Force". Nowadays the NSW RSLs look a lot like casinos. The ones in Perth (WA) are still more like Senior Citizens clubs.
