The 11 Most Indigenous Sacred Sites in Australian Folklore
Australia already had a long cultural history when it was settled by Westerners in the late 1700s. This was thanks to the Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders, who had lived there for a long time. People who were very religious gave many local landmarks spiritual meaning, and people still admire them for that reason. These are the most spiritually important places in Australia, from shiny rocks to wide dunes.
Uluru, which is also called Ayers Rock, is without a doubt the most holy place in Aboriginal culture. It is so holy that the government has made it illegal for people to climb it. Indigenous ceremonies have been held at the huge sandstone monolith for more than 10,000 years, and the local Anangu people believe that ancestral beings still live there.
Kata Tjuta is another rock formation in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. It is made up of 36 boulders scattered across the ochre-colored Central Australian landscape. Like Uluru, Indigenous people believe that Kata Tjuta has spiritual meaning. Aboriginal stories about the domes are mysterious. One Dreaming story tells of a snake king named Wanambi who lived on the top of Mount Olga.
