The Rock, a 1/40 scale replica of Uluru, was built in the early 1990s as part of the Leyland Brothers World, a 40-hectare theme park north of Newcastle.
The park included amusement rides, a playground, roadhouse museum and 144-student capacity bush camp.
In July 1992 a receiver was appointed to the park after the Leyland Brothers company, which owned the park, failed to meet its loan commitment to the Commonwealth Bank.
The theme park was sold at auction by the receiver in November 1992 and purchased for $800,000. It now trades as the Great Aussie Bushcamp.
