A decision on a climbing ban was made today at Uluru and has been a long time coming for some
01 November, 2017, 07:53
The decision was made today by the traditional owners of the land, the Anangu people, and was unanimously affirmed by the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Board of Management this afternoon.
The ban will take effect on October 26, 2019, exactly 34 years after Uluru was handed back to its traditional owners.
Visitors to the remote rock are given the choice of climbing it, but are strongly discouraged from doing so out of respect for the traditional custodians of the land.
The traditional owners of Uluru, the Anangu people, have called for the climb to be closed since 1985, when the park was placed in indigenous hands.
The latest statistics showed just 16 per cent of tourists climb Uluru, paving the way for the closure.
"It is an extremely important place, not a playground or theme park like Disneyland", Wilson was quoted as saying by public broadcaster ABC.
"This decision has been a very long time coming and our thoughts are with the elders who have longed for this day but are no longer with us to celebrate it", CLC director David Ross said in a statement.
The board can also close the climb if it believes people will continue to visit the sacred site without being able to climb.
"After much discussion, we've decided it's time", he said, taking a swipe tourism and government officials who wanted to keep the climb open.
It also warns of the dangers of climbing Uluru, including that many have died while scaling the rock.
Uluru's traditional owners and National Parks representatives voted to end the practice on Wednesday. Under our traditional law, climbing is not permitted.
As custodians, we are responsible for your safety and behaviour. Too many people have died or been hurt causing great sadness. We want you to come, hear us, and learn.
