Uluru or Ayres Rock as it’s also known is located in Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, in the Northern Territory of Australia. This semi-arid red desert is vast. With only 150-280mm of rainfall per year, bush fires are common whether “controlled” or accidental by someone dropping a careless cigarette.
Uluru is famous for its sandstone monolith bearing the same name, but its more than just an iconic big red rock. It tells a story of one of the oldest living cultures dating back thousands of years, a culture that has been lost to “modern day” Australia as we know it.
If you want to know the “real Australia”, you need to visit Uluru … and what a story it has to tell.
