Uluru (Ayers Rock) has long been a destination that I have dreamed of experiencing someday ... and hopefully sooner rather than later! So, you can imagine my excitement when my friend told me that she will be travelling to Uluru for work early next year.
Uluru is an amazing large sandstone rock formation that is located in the southern half of the Northern Territory Australia. The rock formation, which appears to have come out of the ground, out of nowhere, is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
Although, you are able to climb the beautiful rock it is not encouraged, as this amazing wonder and the area around it is sacred to the Anangu Aboriginal people of the area. The area surrounding Uluru is also home to ancient Aboriginal paintings, rock caves and a number of waterholes and springs, as well as a variety of animals such as kangaroos, wallabies and bilbies to name a few.
It is noted that Uluru looks particularly breathtaking at sunset, as the setting sun makes Uluru glow a bright red. To learn more about this natural wonder, head here. In the meantime, here's a beautiful video that was created by the team at Projekta and which captures Uluru from Sunrise to Sunset.
