A millennia-old monolith, Ayers Rock rises dramatically from the flat desert landscape and forms the heartland of Aboriginal Australia or the ‘Red Centre’. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the area around the rock is known for its natural springs, waterholes, and Aboriginal art. Uluru and all the other rocky domes (or ‘Olgas’) dotting Australia’s arid and dusty bushland are part of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and form the religious and cultural core of the indigenous Australian population. A visit to the region affords one with the chance to observe the changing colors of this magnificent natural formation. Climbing is sometimes permitted, but not during local ceremonies and funerals.
