Description: The impressive geological formations of the park formerly known as Uluru (Ayers Rock - Mt. Olga) National Park, tower above the widespread red sandy plain of central Australia. The traditional belief system of one of the oldest human societies in the world incorporates the Uluru (an immense monolith) and Kata Tjuta, and the rock domes west of Uluru. The Anangu Aboriginal people were the traditional owners of Uluru-Kata Tjuta. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
