Uluru (Ayers Rock) is located in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park near the geographical centre of Australia. It is a huge sandstone monolith of remarkable shape and is a listed world heritage site. For thousands of years Uluru has been an important cultural site for the local Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara Aboriginal people. Robert Layton, a local aboriginal, recounts the creation time story which describes the formation of Uluru and the nearby Mount Conner:
"Uluru was built up during the creation period by two boys who played in the mud after rain. When they had finished their game they travelled south to Wiputa. Fighting together, the two boys made their way to the table topped Conner, on top of which their bodies are preserved as boulders"
This is not a classic Ayers Rock view. Instead, it shows the southern edge of the formation and two dead trees near the Mutitjulu waterhole.
