Ayers Rock, Australia

Area Code ?, US$1=$, Jun 1, 2000

Ayers Rock is the portrait of Australia. It is the Eiffle tower of France, USA's the Statue of Liberty and Everest of Nepal. What makes it so striking, is its presence in a sea of nothingness. It is surrounded by sunburnt red dirt as far as the eye can see, and what the first explorers must have thought when they set eyes on it from around 100km away, would be the same reaction that people have now. It is the holiest place for the Australian aboriginals, and they now own the "Uluru"
Fifteen minutes away is the Ayers Rock Resort. A purpose built tourist mecca that, although incredibly small (bookings are needed), caters for every type of traveller.
