Ayers Rock, also referred to as Uluru, is a large sandstone rock formation in the Northern Territory of central Australia.
The red desert soil and desert vegetation, both typical of Australia’s outback, can be seen in the foreground.
Uluru is a part of the Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park and is listed as a World Heritage Site. It is one of Australia’s most recognisable natural icons.
Uluru is an inselberg, literally “island mountain”, an isolated remnant left after the slow erosion of an original mountain range.
