I knew of Uluru from when I was a teenager because of this video:

I honestly thought Uluru was the most famous thing in Australia. Like how if people know one thing about France it's the Eiffel Tower.

The most famous thing in Australia is Fosters. Everyone drinks Fosters. It's like the only reason to get up in the morning.

Oh and kangaroos.

I find that joke so dumb, because no one drinks it, except Paul Hogan in one ad he was paid to do, and I have seen it far more regularly overseas than I have anywhere in Australia.

That, in itself, was the joke. At least from my end. It's just so pathetic, and yet so often reached for, when the topic of Australia comes up.

So often reached for, like cans of Foster’s upon waking up in the morning.

The only thing most of us reach for in the morning is a bucket.

Famous, sure, but I would've thought Uluru was ahead of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.

It really is so fucking boring a joke.

As to how hard it would be to visit Uluru, pretty hard, I'd say. You'd have to drive for a few weeks and then when your car boiled over, hike on foot through the wilderness until your water ran out... which it would... and then pray for a miracle. You'd be like the Trash Can Man. 'Cibola!! My life for you!!!'




Yeah ok, obviously it's not that hard. People go by plane I guess, to the nearest major centre which would be Alice Springs.

Sounds daunting.

As to how hard it would be to visit Trump Tower, pretty hard, I'd say. You'd have to tweet for a few weeks and then when your saddled squirrel died, hike on foot through Mexico until your Pabst Blue Ribbons ran out... which it would... and then pray for a Hamberder. You'd be like Matt Damon. 'Maaaatt Damon'

You also can’t (and shouldn’t anyway) climb it.
Of all people, I am a pretty shocking one to have not known about something like this. I wouldn't want to climb it, but see it? That would be awesome. Sounds difficult, though. Might be why I haven't heard as much about it.

Like Cobbler said, you guys are very well known for the harbor and opera house over here.

Had never heard of Uluru. As far as I know, the most famous Australian landmark is the Sydney Opera House.
