Tales of the Outback…Uluru

Let us take you on a journey through the Australian Outback to explore the myths and legends surrounding some of the country‘s most mesmerising sights…


You will more than likely have heard of Uluru via its more common name, Ayers Rock. As perhaps the most recognisable landmark in Australia, it is another ‘tourist attraction’ that represents a lot more than meets the eye. Situated in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and sacred to the Anangu people, Ayers Rock is surrounded by myth and legend, not only about its formation, but about the scars and shapes found all over its surface. One legend states that the massive sandstone rock was formed as a result of an epic battle between two tribes of ancient spirits, or ‘Lizard People’.

Many of the strange marks on the sides of Uluru are the ancient scars of this battle and each one tells a story of morality that has been passed down through generations of aboriginal families. The land around Uluru, as well as the rock itself is also sacred and is still said to be inhabited by the spirits of dreamtime creatures today.
