Action Asia - - NEWS & VIEWS -

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.
