Uluru RockThe thing about Uluru (Ayers Rock with the respectful Aborigine name) is that it is nothing like you expected it to be and it is everything you expect it to be. It is not as red as it looks in the photos but the colors change constantly. You are advised to take photos every few minutes at sunrise and sunset. They say that we will see the difference on the computer. I was there at those times. It is never the same rock twice.
Uluru is 1150 feet high, a mile and a half long and five and a half miles around. It is one of the world’s largest monoliths and a symbol of Australia. The Rock is located in Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park , 440 km southwest from Alice Springs in the Northern Territories. Uluru is a Unesco World Heritage Site.
Land is very important to the culture of the Aborigines. Many of their significant sites, like Uluru focus on their connection to land.
There are many tourists from many countries at Uluru. People came for different reasons but once you are there you know it is a place that you were supposed to see in your lifetime.
