Abstract:

"Uluru (Ayers Rock) is an extraordinary phenomenon-a distinctive and unique place of Nature, constructed from different layers of nature. The infrastructure layer is the Rock itself as imagined independently of cultural gaze (First-layered Nature); multiple natural constructions influenced by cultural and societal background of diverse reactions (Second-layered Nature); a promoted place and space of natural tourist landscape, commodifying nature (Third-layered Nature). Thus, from Uluru's interlocking layers and the complexity of multicultural perceptions of the natures there, it is a focus of a contested place and space of worthwhile study. This is because the spatiality of its natures evolving over time mirrors the changing socio-cultural drivers of the wider society and beyond-a colonial/postcolonial melting pot of change, real and imagined, within a remote location far removed from the everyday, showing that even remote nature cannot evade the socio-cultural world's life processes, creating a cultural chameleon of nature"--
