  1. Ayers Rock is a famous Australian natural landmark and an Aborigine sacred site that they call Uluru. It's a giant rock near the center of Australia that contains a series of caves. Aborigines have covered the walls of these caves in paintings that describe their dreamings. They consider their art and dreamings to be not only sacred but also secret, and as a result, the meaning of these cave paintings remains a mystery.
