One of the most distinct landmarks in Australia is Ayers Rock, which is comprised of a big chunk of sandstone and monolith. It can be found in the Uluru-Kata Tijuta National Park, more specifically at the southwestern point of the Northern Territory.
Ayers Rock has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is where Aboriginal tribes resided about 10,000 years ago. It was only in the 1870s when westerners invaded the place. The Australian Chief secretary back then named Henry Ayers is whom the place is named after.
