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.
This pin celebrates one of Australia’s most famous landmarks and one which is close to its heart. The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
