Ayers Rock (a.k.a Uluru) is probably one of Australia‘s most famous landmarks, located in the southern part of the Northern Territory. Ayers Rock is sacred to the Aborigines, the name Uluru is the traditional name they gave it and the name Ayers Rock was given only later during the 19th Century. Ayers Rock is a sandstone Rock formation it is 348 meters at it’s highest point (as tall as a building with 100 floors) it is totally different from the flat desert like surrounding which makes it look even more dramatic.
Ayers Rock is known to look like it is actually changing color at different times of the day – mainly during sunrise and sunset, but mostly it is bright red.
