Trove Tuesday

Having spent last weekend here at Uluru/Ayers Rock, I thought I'd find out when it was first named.

Found by Grose in 1873, he called it Ayers Rock after then then Chief Secretary of South Australia, Sir Henry Ayers.

Grose gave the latitude and longitude as its location; lat 20° 21' long 131° 141'

Sydney Mail and New South Wales Advertiser (NSW : 1871 - 1912), Saturday 27 December 1873, page 826

It is absolutely stunning and I will share photos, once I get them up-loaded.

Bye for now,
