Ayers Rock

Australia, Australia

Ayers Rock (Uluru)

Once upon a time, Australia was plain and boring. Australia was overrun by trees. It was a really flat landscape with no unique landmarks. One day a God by the name of Hephaestus he appeared bushfire burning all the unwanted trees.
Hephaestus was the God of fire, metalworking, stone masonry and the art of sculpture. He wanted to impress his love, Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and beauty. Hephaestus knew the only way to impress Aphrodite was to make Australia a more beautiful place, therefore, replacing the trees that had overran Australia with unique sculptures and landmarks.
The only way Hephaestus could travel to Australia was through fire, therefore using his power of fire to burn the unwanted trees away. Once Hephaestus burned all unwanted trees, he then created four unique sculptures, which would become famous landmarks of Australia.
Hephaestus wanted to make the sculptures out of natural materials from the land.
The first sculpture was a 12 rock formation off the coast of Victoria, which he named the 12 Apostles. Hephaestus asked Aphrodite if she liked the 12 Apostles. She didn’t really like them.
Next Hephaestus made 3 tall sophisticated rocks he named the Three Sisters, which were located in New South Wales. These rocks showed his love for his three sisters. Hephaestus asked Aphrodite if she liked the Three Sisters. She said she didn’t like the rock, but she liked the idea.
Hephaestus decided to go up north to the Northern Territory because it was a hot desert country and he was the God of fire. Hephaestus decided not to make a third rock sculpture, but forming a canyon from the land. When Hephaestus was finished creating the canyon, he named it Kings Canyon. Aphrodite loved the look of Kings Canyon but didn’t enjoy the walk a long distance.
Hephaestus was running out ideas but he thought of hopefully one last idea.
The idea was a massively unique rock. After he made the massively unique rock, he created two names for it. One was Ayers Rock and the other was Uluru.
Aphrodite loved the rock because of the colours, the shape and the size. Because she liked Ayers Rock/Uluru, she gave her love to Hephaestus.
The End.
