Uluru on Street View

Panoramic Street View imagery of the magnificent and sacred Uluru is now on Google Maps. Google worked with Aṉangu Traditional Owners of Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park to ensure that they respected Tjukurpa law while capturing this new 360 degree imagery of Uluru and the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park.

You can explore the new Street View imagery of Uluru on Google Maps. To find out where the imagery is available just pick-up the yellow Pegman (all the available Street View imagery is then shown with blue lines on the map).

If you want to learn more about Uluru and its sacred role in Aṉangu culture you can also explore the new Street View on Story Spheres. On Story Spheres the Street View imagery has been enhanced with audio narration. While exploring within the panoramic imagery you can click on the audio buttons to listen to an audio guide from Sammy Wilson and hear song and music by Traditional Owner and Aṉangu Elder, Reggie Uluru.

If you want to know about the importance of the landscape, songlines and dreaming tracks to the indigenous people of Australia then you might also like ABC's story map Singing the Country into Life.
