Australia’s Uluru to ban tourists from climbing it

Published on : Wednesday, November 1, 2017

australias-uluruBased in the desert region of Australia, Uluru that is also renowned as Ayers Rock is among the most popular attractions of the nation that is also quite sacred among tourists.

 

Ever since the 1930’s tourists have been capable of climbing the spectacular monolith in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, despite strong opposition fro m the traditional owners of the land.

 

However, in two more years, it will not be possible for tourists to climb Uluru.

 

The traditional owners as well as the representatives of National Parks have voted to end this practice on Wednesday. The ban would be coming into effect on 26th October 2019.

 

Some people in tourism and government, for instance might have been stating that they need to keep it open.

 

But it is not their law that lies in this land, said Sammy Wilson who is a traditional owner and a park board member, in a certain speech.

 

In fact Uluru is a hub of intense spiritual significance to the Anangu people who are the traditional owners of the land. The Central Land Council (CLC) representing the aboriginal people in Central Australia have welcomed the move. David Ross mentioned in a statement that the decision had been pending since quite some time.

 

While exist certain concerns over the impact of the ban on tourism the number of tourists climbing Uluru have dropped considerably owing to the rising awareness and education.

 

Moreover climbing Uluru has been leading to a number of deaths and negative incidents.

 

Last year the authorities had to rescue a group of three men who were stuck on  the top of the site.
