History of the Uluru/Ayers Rock in Australia
The presence of the Ayer Rock is very sacred to the aboriginal people of this area called the Anangu. According to their beliefs, this huge rock formation was a result of the actions of their ancestors who lived here at ‘the beginning of time.’ This belief is also part of a story that the world was featureless before these ancestors settled in central Australia. In either case, the Uluru Rock is very famous all across the island and makes for a spectacular landmark. The rock is dotted with caves and manholes, which is evidence that it was occupied by man at some point in time.
