The great red monolith is located in the heart of Australia’s Red Centre, and it’s often referred to as Ayers Rock or The Olgas by non-indigenous people. Uluru is sacred ground for Australia’s indigenous Anangu people – a group that has lived on the land for thousands of years, since long before Europeans arrived in 1616. It was formed by erosion over millions of years; today it stands 348 meters (1120 feet) tall and covers an area of 9 square kilometers. You’ll need a permit from Parks Australia if you want to access during daylight hours however, even without one, you can still walk around Uluru after dark if conditions allow it (which they frequently do).
