By Nathalie Craig22 Jun 2018Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is breathtaking any time of the day but amazing new time-lapse footage of the red rocks in the heart of the Northern Territory will take your awe to a whole new level. The footage, which you can watch below, was created to capture the essence of the living cultural landscapes of Uluru and Kata Tjuta, showing the changing colours of the desert as day turns to night. As this clip reminds us, this part of the country is Australia’s spiritual heart where the world is quiet and time stands still. If you’ve been to the red centre yourself you will know this to be true. Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park expands across more than 327,414 acres of Australia’s desert outback and is home to two of the world’s most iconic rock formations. The spectacular ancient monoliths of Uluru and Kata Tjuta are more than 300 million years old and the area’s Indigenous culture dates back more than 30,000 years. Image: Tourism Australia Did you know that Uluru is actually the tip of a huge rock made of arkosic sandstone that continues below the ground for possibly 5 to 6 km? It’s an incredible 3.6 kilometres long and 348 metres at its tallest point – 43 metres higher than Sydney’s Centrepoint Tower, 24 metres higher than the Eiffel Tower and just 33 metres lower than the Empire State Building. The colour changes of Uluru result from the filtering effect of the earth’s atmosphere on the sun’s rays. Kata Tjuta (meaning many heads) is located 30 km west of Uluru and is made up of 36 domed heads, the tallest of which is around 546 metres high. Sounds breathtaking right? This new footage gives a beautiful insight into just how stunning it is…but until you see the rock in person, no footage will do it justice. Standing with your feet in the red sands of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park makes you feel both humble filled with awe.
