Uluru / Ayers Rock view from above

Uluru from above
No climbing!

It was given the name Ayers Rock by white settlers to Australia, but the original aboriginal name is Uluru, which is fast becoming the common name.

Not so many years ago hundreds of people would climb this rock every day, it only took a few hours. But the local people objected strongly since, for them, Uluru is a sacred site, so now hardly anyone climbs, and most people enjoy this fantastic site from the ground or the air.
