Man-made or Natural?

Uluru is a natural land-form in Australia. How it happened well erosion, rain and water created this giant rock. It may look like a small version of a mountain but everyone knows its a giant rock, And erosion also didn't just make Uluru but also it made Wave Rock which is in Western Australia, The Devils Marbles and so on.

Historical Information

Uluru is told to be over 20,000 years old. The original inhabitants of this area was the Anangu, a aboriginal tribe. They call the rock Uluru but when the Europians took over they called it Ayers Rock, naming it after the explorer who found it. After many years it became a national park until Anangu protested and said they wanted their Land back so after that they got it back and allowed the goverment to do a 99 year lease.
