Australia has a special place called the Red Center. It's a big desert with red sand. People think deserts are empty, but here, some of the oldest tribes have lived for many years. One famous spot is Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. It's a big park with a giant rock called Uluru. It's very old, about 500 million years!

Many people visit the park, around 250,000 every year. They want to see Uluru, the world's biggest rock at nearly 350 meters. Aboriginal people, the Anangu, have lived there for 30,000 years. For them, Uluru is special. They believe "spirit people" made it in the "Dreamtime," the time when life began.

People can't climb Uluru because it's important to the Anangu. But you can see it change colors at sunset, walk or cycle around it, and explore the 36 domes of Kata Tjuta. Visit the Cultural Center to learn more about Aboriginal history and art.
