Holiday where the heart is for mother and son

KRISTY REWELL and her son Tate found that a West Travel Club trip to Uluru rocked

"Together with you is my favourite place,” said Tate, my sweet seven-year-old son. I was in the market for a holiday. I was tired from work and the busyness of life and keen for a recharge. I was contemplating an escape to somewhere that Tate and I had not been. I had simple criteria: to board a plane, not have to drive anywhere and not have to cook for a few days.

Sitting in our local cafe, I asked Tate ... if we could have a long weekend somewhere, where we would go.

“Uluru,” Tate squealed. “Did you know that just 25 per cent of Uluru sits above ground and 75 per cent sits underground, Mummy?” Tate is the perfect mix of clever and inquisitive and has good humour. With his impeccable manners and maturity beyond his years, he is the perfect little travel companion.

As I turned the page of The West Australian, while Tate was teaching me about Uluru, I was presented with an advertisement to join a Travel Club Tour, organised in conjunction with Holidays of Australia. The advertisement was inviting and I was sold: a direct charter flight, passes for the Camel Cup races, a pass to the Camel Cup Gala Ball, tours of Uluru and Kata Tjuta, and accommodation for two nights at The Lost Camel Hotel, one of the properties at Ayers Rock Resort.
