Ayers Rock Holidays Overview

 

Ayres Rock or Uluru as it is now known is one of the great wonders of the world. With most of its bulk below the surface, similar to an iceberg, Uluru stands 348 metres high. Measuring 2.4 kilometres long and 1.6 kilometres wide, Uluru is 867 kilometres above sea level and consists of mineral rich sandstone.
 
Early explorations in the area in 1872 led to the discovery by Gosse in 1873 and being named Ayres Rock. By the late 1800s, pastoralists were establishing themselves in the area leading to violent confrontations over the depletion of bush food from grazing and drought. In 1920, the Australian Government declared the Kata Tjuta National Park area of Ayres Rock as an Aboriginal Reserve. The eventual handover and ownership of the now known Uluru was transferred to the Pitjantjatjara Aborigines in 1985.
 
A sacred site with great spiritual meaning for the Anangu the traditional Aboriginal owners, each feature of the rock has significance to the creation of the world or dreamtime. The aboriginals believe that Uluru (Ayres Rock) is inhabited by ancestral ‘beings’ and their actions and deeds have been recorded at many other sites.
 
Today, Uluru (Ayres Rock) is a must do pilgrimage to experience the walk to the top. Tours and guides are provided for the trek with wonderful views and scenic panorama laid out before you.
