Geographical and Aboiginal Perspective

Uluru - Aboriginal Perspective

In the Aboriginal Perspective, Uluru was created by two boys traveling through the area then began building a large mound of mud. then once the pil was high enough, they began sliding down the side of the mound, forming the gullies that are located on the side of Uluru which we see today.

Uluru - Geographical Perspective

For the Geographical Perspective, it was first named Ayers Rock by William Goose in honor of the chief secretary of South Australia, Sir Henry Ayers. About 12 years after Uluru was named Ayers Rock, the government returned ownership to the Pitjantjatjara Aborigines.
