The area is best known for Uluru or Ayers Rock, a single massive rock formation which is visible in central far horizon of this view like a long domed rock. Uluru is one of Australia's best known natural features which is a so-called monolith, extending about 5km beneath the desert plain and measuring 3.6 by 2.4 km at the surface. It rises 348 meters above the plain. Fred Espenak/
