Climbing Uluru to be banned from October 2019
Climbing Uluru is set to be a thing of the past after the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park board decided unanimously to ban the activity, starting in 2019.
The board, made up of eight traditional owners and three representative from National Parks, made the decision after consulting with the wider Anangu community, who it said was overwhelmingly in support of banning climbs.
Speaking at Uluru for the announcement, senior traditional owner and Chairman of the park board Sammy Wilson said the site had deep cultural significance and was not a "theme park".
Wilson stated “some people in tourism and government for example might have been saying we need to keep it open but it's not their law that lies in this land.
"It is an extremely important place, not a playground or theme park like Disneyland.
"The Government needs to respect what we are saying about our culture in the same way it expects us to abide by its laws."
