Closing Uluru to climbers is vital to the preservation, maintenance and on-going development of culture, traditions and knowledge.
The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Board of management has this week announced that tourists will be banned from climbing Uluru from 2019. Sammy Wilson, chairman of the park board, explains why.
The trend of 'naked tourism' reveals something more than just bare bottoms – and it may call for some active interventions.
At the same time as it’s become clear that Indigenous people won't accept a limited change, the right in Australian politics has become more determined to oppose any amendment.
Indigenous Australians have issued a statement calling for constitutional reform that is substantive and meaningful.
At Uluru, Indigenous representatives from across Australia will aim to reach consensus on what constitutional recognition means to them.
Uluru's traditional owners have asked for decades that tourists not climb their sacred site. Parks Australia has committed to closing the climb – but only when some ambitious goals have been met.
