Comment from Brooke
The Aboriginal culture and heritage surrounding Ayers Rock (Uluru), a World Heritage site, is both what helps to create a sense of purpose and importance with the landmark, as well as what adds a bit of sensitivity and controversy with the tourism aspect in general.
The local Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal tribe considers Ayers Rock a sacred monolith, and the fact remains that Ayers Rock was settled thousands of years prior to the arrival of the foreign explorers. Legends say Ayers Rock was created in Dreamtime, and traditional rituals take place to this day in some of the caves, some of which also house ancient rock paintings.
