Explore Ayers Rock, an iconic natural wonder of the Northern Territory


The Northern Territory is a large state in the north central part of Australia, and it is not unimpressive to the world. One of the BBC’s 50 places to visit in your lifetime is here, the famous Uluru Rock, also known as Ayers Rock.

Southwest from Ayers Spring is Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, a 1,326-square-kilometer park deep in the heart of the red earth, best known for Uluru Rock.

The Uluro Giant Rock, also known as Ayers Rock, is about 3 kilometers long, nearly 2 kilometers wide and 350 meters high, and is the largest single rock in the world, two-thirds of which is buried deep in the ground, and the part we see above ground is only one-third of it.

The rock has existed in this desert for nearly 500 million years and is therefore known as the heart of Australia, and can be seen from far away in the center of the red earth. The first time I saw it, I was able to see it.

The reason why Ayers Rock is famous is not only its huge body and long history, but also its changing colors. The color of Ayers Rock varies from season to season, and even from time to time of the day. The most beautiful time is at sunset, when the whole huge rock will turn red and beautiful.

The first time I saw the movie, I was able to see it. The local government has decided to close the climbing trail in October 2019, considering the danger of climbing and the respect for the local indigenous people.

The most recommended option is the Silent Sound Dinner, where you can enjoy the local indigenous dances and local food after the beautiful sunset, and when the night is over, turn off all the light sources and you will find the galaxy of stars in the southern hemisphere above your head.
