Australia’s Iconic Rock Uluru Closed to Public
The most iconic rock in the world, Uluru is closed. So what should travellers do now? As you may know, Uluru , also known as Ayers Rock, was the top bucket list destination of hikers around the globe but has been suffering from erosion due to the concentration of footfall.
Therefore the Australian government took the decision to close Uluru at the end of October 2019. So what should tourists or hikers now do in Australia, other than hiking?
Uluru as a sacred place for local Australian tribe
Australia is well-known for its Aboriginal people and these ancient tribes have their holy sites. Uluru is indeed one of the most sacred places for one renowned tribe, the Anangu tribe. They have been seeking ownership of Uluru from the moment it was made a tourist destination.
In 2017, the national park owners who control Uluru decided to give tourists access to the rock for two more years. But October 2019 was the last time tourists could climb Uluru – and some emotional scenes were witnessed on top of the rock as people said goodbye to this special location.
Tribe representatives are happy with the decision because their sacred place is now protected. In fact, the Anangu people think that no one should ever touch or climb their most sacred landmark.
Uluru is closed, what to do now?
