Uluru - Places to See

Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and Yulara.
The greatest tourist attraction in the Northern Territory. An awesome sight particularly at both sunrise and sunset.
There is something totally awe-inspiring about Uluru. There it sits in the centre of Australia. A huge monolith, 862.5 metres above sea level, 1395 km south of Darwin and 465 km south west of Alice Springs, rising out of the desert. No wonder the local Aborigines regarded it as a sacred site. The average white Australian, clinging to the shores of this vast continent, also regards 'the greatest stone on earth' as something very special.
