Capturing Oz’s spiritual heart
NEW TIME-LAPSE VIDEO captures the changing colours of Uluru-kata Tjuta National Park, showing the transition from day to night. Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is a monolith made of arkosic sandstone that, iceberg-like, continues down below ground for as much as five to six kilometres. Its visible portion is 3.6km long and 348m high at its highest point – taller than the Eiffel Tower. Kata Tjuta, 30km west from Uluru, comprises 36 similarly coloured and domed stones. Uluru-kata Tjuta National Park is dual-listed by UNESCO for its landscapes and for being the home of the Anangu indigenous people, and spans more than 327,414 acres of Australia’s desert outback. The famous formation at its heart dates back to about 550 million years ago.
