Don't climb Uluru


Don't climb - respect the indigenous people.

"The traditional owners of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park ask visitors not to climb Uluru because of its spiritual significance as the traditional route of the ancestral Mala men on their arrival at Uluru. We prefer that visitors explore Uluru through the wide range of guided walks and interpretive attractions on offer in the Park. At the Cultural Centre you will learn more about these and the significance of Uluru in Anangu culture.

Anangu have not closed the climb. They prefer that you - out of education and understanding - choose to respect their law and culture by not climbing."

It's a pity that we allow anyone and everyone to climb all over Aoraki. It just isn't right!
