One of Australia’s most recognizable natural icon is a large sandstone rock formation called Ayer’s Rock or Uluru, located about 450 km away from the town of Alice Springs, in Northern Territory. Every year more than a quarter of a million tourists drive down the road from Alice Springs to visit the famous rock and its cousin Kata Tjuta. At some point during the long drive, the high profile of a large rocky mountain appears on the horizon. An excitement surges through the travellers who believe they have spotted the famous Uluru. After a flurry of photos, it eventually dawns on most of them that this rock actually looks quite different from Uluru's famous silhouette.

This rocky mountain that visitors encounter on their way to the Uluru-Kata Tjuṯa National Park is the lesser known Mount Conner. Locals sometimes call it “Fooluru” (or “Fuluru”) because it is known to fool tourists.
