Stretching 2300 kilometres, this natural icon is so large it can even be seen from outer space.

Some of these, such as turtles and crocodiles, have been around since prehistoric times and have changed little over the millennia.

Uluru and Aboriginal Culture - Uluru (Ayers Rock) Australia The area around Uluru was settled thousands of years ago, and although it was ‘discovered’ by the white man in the 1800s, Uluru and Aboriginal culture are very much entwined today. In fact, Uluru (Ayers Rock) is sacred to the local Pitjantjatjara tribe that live here. It was said to have come about during the much fabled Dreamtime. Although people have been visiting and climbing Uluru for years, the Aborigines would prefer they didn’t. Aboriginal ancestors walked the path that tourists do today, and many of the caves around the rock hold deep meanings for them and contain ancient rock paintings.

Terms like FOMO have origniated from the platform and highlight the fear of missing out that users experience when they see other users tagged in event posts. I stumbled across a video today that I feel perfectly captures the issues associated with young people and social media usage.
