  Ayers Rock up close
by windsorgirl

While you are enjoying your walk around the base of Ayers Rock, be sure to notice that up close the seemingly smooth rock surface is actually rough and scaly.

And, did you know that what we see of Ayers Rock above the ground surface is only the tip of the iceberg? This giant sandstone monolith is estimated to extend another 3kms beneath ground level.
