Uluru is one of Australia’s most recognisable natural landmarks. The sandstone formation stands 348 m (1,142 ft) high, rising 863 m (2,831 ft) above sea level with most of its bulk lying underground, and has a total circumference of 9.4 km (5.8 mi). Both Uluru and the nearby Kata Tute formation have great cultural significance for the Anju people, the traditional inhabitants of the area, who lead walking tours to inform visitors about the local flora and fauna, bush food and the Aboriginal Dreamtime stories of the area. Uluru is notable for appearing to change colour at different times of the day and year, most notably when it glows red at dawn and sunset. Wikipedia the Free Dictionary
Ernest Giles, a European explorer who first sighted the rock in 1872 named it ‘Ayers Rock’ . This name was chosen after the South Australian Premier Sir Henry Ayers.
Uluru is the traditional and cultural land of the Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara people. Paintings and carvings abound in the area which was created by these people. There are also a number of sacred sites with great significance to the Aboriginal people.
On the 26th of October the government of Australia returned the ownership of Uluru to the Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal people. The condition was that it would be leased back to the National Parks and Wildlife for 99 years. The government also required joint management of the site.
In 1995 the National Park’s name was changed from Ayers Rock-Mount Olga National Park to Uluru-Kata Tute National Park.
