Rare rainfall creates stunning waterfalls over Australia's Uluru rock
Central Australia's Uluru rock formation is known for both its impressive size and the severity of the surrounding arid climate.
Those in the area recently got a double treat – heavy rains and a rare glimpse at water cascading down Uluru's nearly 1,000-foot tall face.
Significant precipitation has been falling since Monday, resulting in a sight that only occurs every few years.
There is some excellent news for those wanting to see the splendor for themselves – the wet period may not be over quite yet.
Though the rain is expected to pause over the weekend, next week's forecast calls for plenty more.
After that, it's largely unknown when the opportunity will again arise.
The region is among the driest in the nation.
