Pin: Uluru & Kaliny-Kalinypa (Honey Grevillea)
Uluru – AKA ‘The rock’
Uluru is on Anangu country. Its story and cultural significance to the Anangu people dates back to the Tjukurpa (dreamtime creation period). Uluru forms part of the cultural identity of the Anangu people who’s descendants have lived in its surrounding landscape for at least 30 thousand years.
In more recent history Uluru was named Eyers Rock by the colonial explroer Gosse who named it in honour of the Chief Secretary of South Australia, Sir Henry Ayers.
The design of this pin embraces the flower Kaliny-Kalinypa (Honey Grevillea) which is native to the Uluru region. Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
