Uluru, Northern Territory, Australia. The sandstone rock is one of the most famous attractions in Australia. The symbolical meaning of the large formation is as impressive as it is itself.
Uluru is 348 m (1,142 ft) high, its circumference is 9.4 km (5.8 mi). The inselberg is believed to be sacred by Aboriginal people. They believe that the spirits still live in the area. They are accompanied by the unique animal species, that live here.
Many tourists visit the spot. The most popular activity is, of course, climbing Uluru. However, the proposition to ban the activity has been considered lately. Therefore, it might be a good idea to hurry up and visit Uluru now.
