Ayres Rock or locally known as Uluru is a sacred place to the Aboriginal people of the area. This rock formation is the largest in the world and most recognizable landmark in Australia. Believe it or not but it changes its colours: from blackish violet at sunrise through deep red and crimson at dusk to end up as a mysterious dark shadow at night. The ancient monolith stands 350m high and has a total circumference of 9.4 km. Being hollow inside the boulder is believed to have an energy source in its depth. The local Aboriginal population calls it Tjukurpa ( Dreamtime ). There is a belief that if one takes a pebble or even a small chip of the rock they should face a great misfortune further on. That's why, to be on the safe side, the tourists who have bought souvenirs from Uluru send them back home by post. You may also want to see the shamans from the Western Desert who summon all the tribes at an exact time and perform certain dancing rituals in order to ask the evil spirits to spare their peoples troubles and disease. During your trip in the region you shouldn't miss to explore the rock drawings, some of which older than 10 000 years, in the caves around.
Uluru (the stone that casts a shadow) is as old as 600 million years. It is both a mysterious and stunningly beautiful place. It is far from the regular tourist routes situated in the centre of the country in an uninhabited region. The best time of the year to visit is April, May and September.
