440 kilometres south west of Alice Springs, Uluru fascinates and
inspires people from around the world. One of Australia’s most
famous geographic features, Uluru is known the world over for its
natural majesty and its significance to the Anangu aboriginal people.
Also known as Ayers Rock, this massive rock formation is a must-see for
everyone visiting Australia.
Both Uluru and its neighbour, Kata Tjuta, have great cultural
significance for the Anangu traditional landowners, who lead walking
tours that inform about the local flora and fauna, bush foods and the
Aboriginal Dreamtime stories of the area. The Anangu people prefer
visitors don't climb Uluru because it’s a sacred site, so
nowadays many visitors choose to do the Uluru walking trails instead.
