Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory in central Australia. It is located 335 km south west of the nearest large town, Alice Springs.
Uluru is sacred to the Anangu, the Aboriginal people of the area. The area around the formation is home to a huge numbers of springs, waterholes, rock caves, and ancient paintings. Uluru is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Uluru is one of Australia’s most recognisable natural landmarks. The sandstone formation stands 348 m high, rising 863 m above sea level with most of its bulk lying underground, and has a total circumference of 9.4 km. It is notable for appearing to change colour at different times of the day and year, most dramatically when it glows red at dawn and sunset. Sunrises and Sunsets cause changes to its colour from browns though oranges, and reds to finally grey.
Below are some photos taken during sunrise and sunset in Uluru – It is interesting to see the changes in colours. It was even more incredible and amazing to be there to experience it. It is breathtakingly beautiful!
