Ayers Rock (Australia)

Ayers Rock Travel Guide and Trip Resources


Sacred rock

Ayers Rock or Uluru is a large sandstone rock and the main sight in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in the Northern Territory of Australia. Considered to be sacred by the Aboriginal people of the area (Anangu). Due to this, climbing is discouraged though not officially illegal. Take note that besides cultural arguments there are quite a few other arguments related to your personal safety that may convince you to just view the rock from the bottom.
