Formed hundreds of millions of years ago, the sacred Aboriginal site is now on Google Streetview.
The massive, rust-red rock rising from the dry ground in the middle of Australia is a sight that leaves most people in awe. Indeed, it’s such a unique structure that the Anangu tribe, an Aboriginal people of Australia, have considered it a sacred site for 10,000 years or more.
Uluru goes by two names. The common name is Ayers Rock, named after Sir Henry Ayers by William Gosse in 1873. However, the Aboriginal name for the rock, Uluru, is its official name. But no matter what you call it, it’s clear this vividly red monolith is a popular destination for travelers.
But for those who won’t be going to Australia any time soon, you can still explore the site thanks to Google.
