Uluru is a large sandstone rock formation in Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park in the southern part of the Northern Territory in central Australia.
Uluru is one of Australia’s most recognisable natural landmarks. The sandstone formation stands 348 meters high and has a total circumference of 9.4 km. Uluru has great cultural significance for the Aṉangu people, the traditional inhabitants of the area, who lead walking tours to inform visitors about the local flora and fauna and bush foods.
Uluru is an inselberg, literally “island mountain”. An inselberg is a prominent isolated residual knob or hill that rises abruptly from and is surrounded by extensive and relatively flat erosion lowlands in a hot, dry region.
The park is listed as a World Heritage Site.
