The Project host Steve Price shocks his co-hosts by claiming he has a piece of Uluru as a souvenir – and is scolded by Carrie Bickmore for saying the sacred site is ‘just a rock’
The Project’s Steve Price said on Monday that he owns a piece of Uluru, the sandstone rock formation in central Australia that is sacred to Indigenous peoples.
While discussing ancient artefacts, the 65-year-old radio host also claimed to have pieces from the Colosseum in Italy and Germany’s Berlin Wall.
‘I got a bit of the Berlin Wall but I think it might just be a rock because I didn’t go over there with a hammer and chisel and knock it out. I pinched it off the wall,’ he said.

‘[I’ve also got] a bit of Uluru and a bit of the Colosseum,’ Steven continued.
‘What do you mean a little piece of Uluru?’ his co-host Peter Helliar asked in disbelief, to which Steve replied: ‘Well, it’s just a rock!’
A stunned Carrie Bickmore added: ‘No, you haven’t. You are just saying that to make people very annoyed at you.’
Shocked: While discussing ancient artefacts, Steve claimed to have a rock from Uluru, as well as pieces from the Colosseum and the Berlin Wall. When he argued that Uluru was ‘just a rock’, Carrie Bickmore (pictured) said: ‘You are just saying that to make people very annoyed at you’

It comes after Steve branded Peter ‘un-Australian’ during a heated debate about Melbourne’s strict lockdown rules last month.
The panel was discussing if it was fair that Victorians could be fined $5,000 for having more than five people gather for a barbecue.
Steve asked the panellists whether they would dob in their neighbours to police if they saw them breaching COVID-19 restrictions, and Peter said he would.

‘I wouldn’t think twice about it,’ he said.
The pair then argued about the subject while co-hosts Carrie and Waleed Aly tried to lighten the conversation.
‘Really? You’re a dobber? You’re a dobber. It’s un-Australian, Peter!’ Steve snapped.
‘Mate, I don’t care. That’s bulls**t,’ Peter hit back. ‘You can say it again if you want – I’ll say the same thing.’
