|Described by explorer Ernst Giles in 1872, as 'the remarkable pebble', this worl heritage area is owned by the Anangu, the traditional landholders of the region. It is one of the most powerful parts of Aboriginal 'Tjukurrpa'(mythology), with many 'dreamings' centering on Uluru. It is remarkable in every way. Changing colour throughout the day - Uluru at sunset is astonishing. The rock is a gallery of Aboriginal rock carvings and paintings and all around its caves and waterholes each have stories and meanings to its people.|
