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.
