Ayers Rock, also goes by the Aboriginal name of Uluru, is one of Australia's most recognisable natural landmarks. A huge sandstone formation jutting up about 350 meters from its barren surrounds with most of its bulk lying underground. An immense monolith resides in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park that features spectacular geological formations that dominate the vast red sandy plain of central Australia. Although there are other, similar entities to Uluru – most notably the nearby Olgas and Mount Augustus in Western Australia – it is the only singular monolith with its composition. Uluru is sacred to the Pitjantjatjara Anangu, the Aboriginal people of the area. Visitors can climb Ayers Rock as well as explore the base of it, which is around 10 km by footpath.
