Ayers Rock, which is also known by its aboriginal name, Uluru, is a great red monolith rising 1000ft above the desert floor, and is one of Australia's most recognizable, and curious natural wonders. The huge sandstone rock formation is located in the southern part of central Australia 287 miles southwest of Alice Spring in the Kata Tjuta National Park which is administered by the Anangu tribe, and is an extremely sacred location for the aboriginal people of this area. The Aborigines believe that Uluru is hollow below ground, and that there is an energy source that they call 'Tjukurpa' the 'Dreamtime'. The term Tjukurpa is also used to refer to the record of all activities of a particular ancestral being from the very beginning of his or her travels to their end, and the Anangu have requested that visitors refrain from climbing the rock to avoid interference with the traditional spirits that inhabit the area.
