INBOUND vis­i­tors to Aus­tralia are likely to be some­what con­fused by the news to­day that Uluru has been de­stroyed by fire overnight.

For­tu­nately it’s not the real thing, but an iconic fi­bre­glass replica on the Pa­cific Highway north of New­cas­tle, NSW.

The Rock Road­house ( pic­tured) was part of Ley­land Broth­ers World, an ill-fated theme park de­vel­oped as a spin-off from a 1980s TV show.

The 1/40 scale model Ay­ers Rock is now no more, but for­tu­nately no one was in­jured.
