What to see in Australia
Uluru or Ayers Rock
Tourist attractions Uluru or Ayers Rock
One of the icons of Australia is this mountain rising from nothing, in the middle of the desert. In reality, it is less of a mountain and more of a single, huge, rock. What's more, Uluru is a sacred place for the Aboriginals, so climbing the rock is forbidden. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987.
