Uluru is the world’s greatest monolith. The Rock rises 348 metres above a sandy plain covered in desert oak and spinifex. It’s believed that two-thirds of the Rock lies beneath the sand. The colours of the Rock change with sunrise, sunset and the hours of the day. Today explore all that this stunning area has to offer.
