Ayers Rock

Southwest of Alice Springs is Ayers Rock/ Uluru, the world's largest monolith, an Aboriginal sacred site, and Australia's most famous natural landmark. Visitors may wish to make the tough ascent to the top, or take a walking tour around the rock with an aboriginal guide to learn about its history with the Uluru people and its importance in dreamtime legend.

At the base of Uluru, there are cave paintings and carvings made over many thousands of years by Anangu belonging to the Luritja, Yankuntjatjara and Pitjantjatjara language groups. Ayers Rock and its surrounding area is an ancient sacred place for the Anangu people.
