Aus­tralia’s Heart Lights Up

Vision Magazine - - Destinations -

It’s hard not to be awe-struck by the sight of the mys­te­ri­ous sand­stone mono­lith that stands ma­jes­ti­cally in the cen­tral desert re­gion in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory, 450 km from Alice Springs. Tra­di­tion­ally called Uluru by Indige­nous dwellers and named Ay­ers Rock by Euro­pean ex­plor­ers, this mas­sive sand­stone rock in cen­tral Aus­tralia is be­lieved to have been formed by an­ces­tral be­ings in cre­ation time or Dream­time. The hues of this sa­cred an­ces­tral site are ever chang­ing and ra­di­ate an oth­er­worldly beauty, rem­i­nis­cent of an­cient art­work – pre­dat­ing his­tory.
