We have the world’s biggest and most famous rock – and other big rocks too

Uluru stands 348m (1,142 feet) above the surrounding desert plain, making it taller than the Eiffel Tower. Imbued with spirituality and rich Aboriginal history, watching Uluru change colours at sunrise or sunset is one of Australia’s most unmissable experiences. Uluru is the world’s largest monolith and should be at the top of any travel list. Any travellers aspiring to visit other wondrous rock formations should also add Mount Augustus to their list. Located in Western Australia, Mount Augustus is approximately double the size of Uluru and is often identified as the world’s largest monolith, but, because it is composed of multiple rock types, it is technically not a monolith.
