WATCH: First ever drone footage of Uluru shows Australia’s Ayers Rock in a stunning light
Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is one of the most recognisable landmarks in the world.
Located pretty much bang in the middle of Australia in the Northern Territory, it is visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year despite the considerable effort it takes to get there.
Alice Springs, the nearest town of any significant size, for example, is over 450 kilometres away by road.
The reason that people keep going to see a monolith that’s 600 million years old is because it truly is a spectacular sight; something that’s clear in new footage released just this week by the first drone to ever operate under permit inside Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

Nothing beats being there in person, but this is pretty close.
