Did you know that the Earth kind of has a “belly button”? It is located in the middle of the Gulf of Guinea, in the South Atlantic Ocean.
However, Australia also has its own belly button, the Uluru, located in the middle of an endless expanse of barren wilderness in the Northern Territory. As I have long heard of this massive monolith and have always been curious about it, I decided to take our first travel group from Malaysia to venture overseas after two years to discover more about this natural wonder. According to the local Anangu aborigines, Uluru is known to the community as the “belly button of the world”. It is considered a sacred place in aboriginal folklore and culture, “the guardian of our safety and growth over the generations” said one Anangu man we met.
