Uluru, Petermann NT 0872, Australia

Introduction of Uluru

Uluru Giant Rock (Uluru,) Ayers Rock) is located in Uluru- Catachuta National Park in the southern interior of the Northern Territory (the nearest big city in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park), is about 460km drive from (Alice Springs), the Northern Territory capital, about 1960 kilometers from Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory.

Uluru- Catachuta National Park has a special airport: Ayers Rock Airport (Ayers Rock Airport, Airport code: AYQ), from Melbourne,Sydney, Alice Springs, Cairns has a direct flight, due to monopoly and remoteness, tickets to Elesyan Airport are very expensive, the airport has Herz,AVIS and other car rental companies to provide car rental.

Uluru is a huge reddish-brown rock with a circumference of about 9.4 kilometers and an elevation of 863 meters above sea level. It is the largest single rock in the world. It is called the Red Heart of Australia because it is located in the central position of the entire Australian mainland. Uluru miraculously protrudes in the desolate expanse of the flat desert, like a desolate praise, beyond time and space of the natural monument. Scientists are still unable to crack the source of the world's unique huge rock. Some say meteor stones that fell from space hundreds of millions of years ago, 2/3 of which sank to the ground and 1/3 floated to the ground, while others said deep-sea sediments surfaced with mainland, Australia, 120 million years ago, a problem that may have become an ancient mystery. Therefore, the whole Uluru- Catachuta National Park was selected by UNESCO as the World Natural and Cultural Heritage site (1987). It is one of the two world natural and cultural heritage sites in the Northern Territory (the other is the Kakadu National Park).

Uluru is the name of the big stone by the local aborigines. In the local aboriginal language, it means to meet rally, and (Ayers Rock) is the official scientific name given to the big stone by Westerners. But by 1873, a European geological surveyor named Christie Gauss unexpectedly discovered the world miracle because he was from South Australia. So the stone mountain was named after Henry Ayers, then prime minister of South Australia.

There is no place in Australia as easy to recognize as Uluru. No matter how many times you have seen it on a postcard, you can't help but marvel at the magnificent scenery on the horizon in front of you. Its lonely and great figure makes it hard for everyone who sees it with your own eyes to forget it. What is more fascinating is that Uluru seems to be a beautiful model in nature, "changing into new clothes of all colors" with the change of the morning and the weather: when the sun rises from the edge of the desert, the boulder "wears a light red dress", bright and magnificent, and by noon, "wear an orange coat"; When the sun sets, the boulders are colorful, burning like a blazing flame under the blue sky; when night falls, it hurriedly changes into a yellowish-brown evening dress and returns to the arms of Mother Earth in a graceful manner.
