One of the world’s most renowned natural landmarks is Australia’s Uluru, previously known as Ayers Rock. In the heart of Australia’s outback, this iconic structure has a vast history.

Geologists believe Uluru dates back about 500 million years, making it around the same age as the Australian continent. It is taller than Eiffel Tower and older than the Himalayas.

Uluru was formed by the slow erosion of the original mountain range. The rock is homogeneous, and as a result, there is no soil on it. It is full of caves, canyons, cracks, water holes, and other natural formations, as well as ancient paintings and carvings.
