Uluru

Uluru:  an iconic rock formation in central Australia.  Uluru holds spiritual significance to the Aboriginal people.  Cave paintings depict the local plant and wildlife, and tracks wind throughout the mountain for spiritual journeys.  A community of Aboriginal people live in and around the mountain, and occasionally even work for the national park Uluru belongs to.
