Where is it? off the Lasseter Highway, 450km south-west of Alice Springs

How to see it for yourself?

The easiest way to see this sacred monolith is to fly direct to Ayers Rock Airport (Yulara), which is about 22km north of Uluru. Alternatively you can drive or catch a tour bus from Alice Springs with an operator like Travel Aust (travelaust.com.au), which offers daily transfers.
Why I love it: In The Dry

“Indigenous Australians believe Uluru to be the centre of all Dreaming. Traditionally, this area was seen as something like the hub of a wheel, with songlines radiating from it across the land. I believe Uluru is a place that is special for all Australians. I would even go so far as to say that I believe a new ‘song’ is coming – a song of unity and reconciliation between the different cultures of our nation – that will spread powerfully through the rest of the land.” – Ken Duncan
