People on holidays to Australia may have been lucky enough to see the waterfalls on Uluru if they were travelling near the landmark this week.

Anyone who has taken holidays to Australia this week may have caught a glimpse of the waterfalls cascading off of one of the country’s most iconic sights.

Rains in the Northern Territory resulted in spectacular waterfalls running off the sides of Uluru, something that many visitors to the region never get to experience.

The Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park received more than 50 millimetres of rain, resulting in the water flowing down the landmark in torrents.

In an interview with state radio, Christine Burke, the park’s manager, commented: “It’s a very exciting time at the park now to see what happens after we have a good rain and it looks beautiful.”

Usually an arid landscape, the rains have turned the desert green and caused flooding in some areas.

Earlier this month, the state government decided not to impose a ban on climbing Uluru.

The indigenous owners have often called for the climb to be closed because it is a sacred site among aborigines.
