Member Update - Alex Ioannou

Updated: Jul 20, 2023


Sometimes it is lovely to hear from our members on their travels.

Alex Ioannou who featured in a members update last year has been travelling and sent in photos from Uluru. Alex was responsible for the drafting the landscape management plans for The Royal Parks and volunteers with the Guild E-bulletins on our Editorial Commitee. He writes

Weathering of iron-bearing minerals by the process of oxidation gives the outer surface layer a red-brown rusty colour. However, when it rains the rock’s colour changes! I was lucky enough to be there to see it in the sun and rain. The rock is sacred to the Anangu people, the Aboriginal owners of the land and has played a role in their lives and survival for thousands of years. Across the whole rock various forms represent parts of several stories which the Anangu use to pass down stories and lessons. It is a landscape of incredible sacredness, one of immense power (nature and spiritual) and of unexpected beauty.
