Drone footage shows Uluru like you’ve never seen it before

Uluru is an iconic landmark of the Australian outback and its size and majesty can only be appreciated in person but new drone footage shows the 600-million-year-old monolith like you’ve never seen it before.

For the first time, a drone was able to operate with special permission inside the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and the footage it captured was amazing.

What many people don’t realise about Uluru, unless they are standing in front of it, is how big it is.

It is actually 9km around the base, 3.6km long and, at 348m high, it is 43m taller than Sydney’s Centrepoint Tower and 24m higher than the Eiffel Tower.
