Ayers Rock, also called Uluru, reaches a peak of 1,142 feet (348 m) and measures 5.8 miles (9.4 km) around. Ayers Rock features waterholes, springs, and rock caves. Although not relevant to natural characteristics, Uluru has historical significance because of ancient paintings found within the caves.

It tends to glow red as the sun sets marking one of the best views.
