Went out to see the Olgas (Kata Tjuta), walked along the Valley of the Winds. The guides gave an overview of aboriginal society: the oral tradition (stories) communicate how-to and law information, modulated by the level of experience of audience. The uninitiated, and that by default includes non-Aboriginals, get children's stories. We saw the Rock at sunset, from afar.

We drove past not-the-rock, Atila or Mount Conner, which is a horseshoe-shaped flat-topped mesa tableland. It's on the privately-held farmland of Curtin Springs.
