Situated in the southern part of Australia‘s Northern Territory, Uluru is a huge sandstone formation. Its reddish hue provides a striking contrast against the blue sky. Also called ‘Ayers Rock’, Uluru has become one of the most popular landmarks in Australia. The Anangu, the area’s Aboriginal people, consider it a sacred site. You’ll have plenty to see since Uluru has caves, ancient paintings and watering holes surrounding it.
