Ayers Rock, also known as Uluru, is a large sandstone rock formation located in the central desert region of Australia's Northern Territory. It is a significant site for the local Anangu people, who have lived in the area for thousands of years and consider it to be a sacred site.

Ayers Rock stands 348 meters tall and measures approximately 3.6 km in circumference. It is a unique geological formation, and its appearance changes throughout the day as the sunlight hits it from different angles. The rock is rich in iron, which gives it its distinctive red color.

Ayers Rock is a popular tourist destination, and visitors can hike around the base of the rock, which takes about two hours. There are also several lookout points from which visitors can view the rock and the surrounding desert landscape. Visitors are also able to climb to the top of Ayers Rock, although this is discouraged by the local Anangu people, who consider it to be a sacred site.

In 1985, Ayers Rock was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, in recognition of its significant cultural and geological value. The site is managed by Parks Australia, which works to protect the area and preserve its natural and cultural heritage.
