Here’s a round-up of where our presenters are heading on the The Big Australian show
Uluru has been a dominant fixture on the landscape for millions of years. A sacred symbol of the Anangu people, Uluru is a cultural centrepiece. Having settled there nearly 10,000 years ago, the history of the Anangu, and of Uluru, are inseparable.
See Uluru from a whole new perspective with these authentic cultural experiences.
