After an incredibly dry 2015, rain in Australia’s Red Centre has transformed the landscape, turning the outback green. Star of the show is Uluru, which has been changed dramatically by the latest deluges.

Parks Australia shared these awe-inspiring photos of the iconic rock, which is covered with silvery streams and has changed colour to a deeper mahogany.

  2. We were there in August 5 years ago and they had unseasonal rain. The Sturt Desert Peas were magnificent. We live in a beautiful country.
