Uluru, also known as Ayer's Rock, is a natural wonder found in the Gods & Kings expansion for Civilization V. It is a rock formation located in Australia and is considered holy by the Aborigines. If worked, it provides a religious benefit in the game. While units except for Helicopter Gunships (which sustain damage if left there), cannot cross it, it does not count as a mountain allowing an adjacent city to build Neuschwanstein (Civ5).
Commonly referred to as "Ayers Rock," the massive red sandstone formation in central Australia has, over the past century, become one of Australia's most recognizable landmarks. Long before it was discovered by English explorers in the late 1800s, the mountain was known as "Uluru," a name given by the indigenous tribesmen of the area who share varying legends as to its creation and significance. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987, this led to an immediate upsurge in tourism, with several hundred thousand visitors exploring the site each year.
