image for Australia has the world's most boring big rocks - 2015 Rough Guide To Boredom
Ayer's Rock this morning

Several more interesting big stones have been attracting tourists in Australia who, having seen Ayer's Rock are keen to have even more sensational fun watching different big red lumps of sandstone.

Kata Tjuta, sometimes written Tjuṯa, are a group of large very fascinating sacred inanimate sandstone formations or Bornhardts located about 365 km (227 mi) southwest of Alice Springs, in the southern part of the Northern Territory, central Australia. Uluru, 25 km to the east, and Kata Tjuta form the two major fascinating big red stones within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

The 36 stones that make up Kata Tjuta cover an area of 21.68 km2 (8.37 sq mi), are composed of conglomerate, a sedimentary rock consisting of cobbles and boulders of varying rock types including granite and basalt, cemented by a matrix of sandstone.

The Rocks are completely pointless and to the delight of nerds, not even very high, the highest point, Mount Olga, is 1,066 m (3,497 ft) above sea level, or approximately 546 m above the surrounding plain (198 m (650 ft) higher than Uluru).Kata Tjuta is located at the eastern end of the Docker River Road.

Austrslia is the world's main centre for stone spotting.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
