Australia’s Ayers Rock, or Uluru, as the indigenous people call it, rises 1,200 feet above the desert floor, one of the world’s largest monoliths. The nearly 6-mile walk around the rim provides ecotourists glimpses of sacred water springs, rock cave art and a plethora of flora and fauna not seen in these parts.
It’s such an amazing Northern Territory landmark that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate and William, visited Uluru last month to meet with students at the National Indigenous Training Academy. Body-painted Wakagetti dancers greeted the young couple.
