Uluru is considered once of the great wonders of the world.
It is one of Australia's most recognizable natural icons.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is inscribed on the World Heritage List for both its natural and cultural values.
The famous "Rock" stands348 metres high and, like an iceberg, has most of its bulk below the surface. It is located 440 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Forty kilometres to the west of Uluru/Ayers Rock is Kata Tjuta, also known as The Olgas. This massive pile of rock domes dates back 500 million years.
