      The ban comes into effect on October 26.

        Oh no !!!

        I thought it started in November…

        I'll need to catch an earlier flight.

        •  

          Even if you get earlier, climbing is not open every day - subject to weather conditions.

        No climbing from and including 26 October - that's this Saturday.

    They probably know that after the ban the interest in Uluru will drop significantly

    • -1 vote

      Yup, and then the 'traditional owners' will no doubt ask for more handouts from the government because they're no longer making enough money.

        'traditional owners' working there don't want the ban, yuppy activists do

        Are their handouts bigger than yours? What's your address, we'll come around and camp and climb all over your house during Christmas.

          I live in my house. And when I can, I let it out on Airbnb. And pay taxes on that income.

          Apply that to your sorry attempt at an analogy.

            @HighAndDry: I asked about your handouts not your sorry lifestyle. No surprise that you didn't understand the analogy but I'll make it simple for you. Ever heard of the Golden Rule? Look it up.

      Why would it? The number of climbers have plummeted in the last 20 years from over 75% of visitors to under 15% last year. If they allowed the climb to continue, the number of climbers would likely drop further, not increase.

      •  

        Perhaps you're right. But it was super busy in the last weeks probably because of the imminent ban

        •  

          There's certainly an element of ignorants getting one last go at pissing on the top of Uluru but supposedly the hotels are heavily booked for November, so take that as you will.

        Bad example as you can actually climb the Statue of Liberty 🗽

        not exactly the same thing… climbing the Uluru (btw is more of a hike - and before you ask, yes I climbed it) would be the same as banning climbing Mount Perisher or banning sunbathing at Hyams beach. Totally nonsense.

        • +13 votes

          It's not actually. It's culturally insensitive to the traditional owners of the land who have asked people to not climb it as it's a sacred site.

          Are there groups with a reasonable claim to Perisher or the beach claiming you can't climb or bathe there? No, so stop building your strawman.

          They tried the nice way by saying 'please don't climb it' and people still did…so now the body who manages it is going to make it illegal to climb.

          • -11 votes

            @Zapo: According to my culture and religion, both Hyams Beach and Perisher are sacred place. So please, as a sign of respect to me, stop going there.
            Thank you.

              @ets27: I added the word REASONABLE because I could forsee your moronic response.

              Please do not go to Uluru after the climbing ban, no one will lose a freakin' tear and everyone else who goes will be far better off without your ilk being there.

            @Zapo: What the hell does "culturally insensitive" even mean and why does it get any thrift?

          • +2 votes

            @Zapo: I believe in the 80's the traditional owners (Paddy Uluru et al.) said there was no cultural significance and welcomed people to come climb it if they were stupid enough to want to.

            • -1 vote

              @wittyusername: What you believe is irrelevant. Thankfully the world has moved on and aborigines have not only embraced their own skin and culture but they've also won rights we accept as a given.

            •  

              @wittyusername: ONE traditional owner said this in the 1970's but never publicly and the claim is only based on the recollections of a white park ranger.

              8 current traditional owners (who make up the majority of the National Park Board) made a decision based on community consultation to close the climb.

              I believe we should respect the wishes of 8 people (at least) who have made their wishes clear over the reported possible claim from another traditional owner some 40+ years ago via hearsay.

              What gets me about the right wing media when ever they trot out the 'Paddy Uluru' comment is that surely they can find a single anangnu who is actually alive to make this statement publicly…

      There are plently of other rocks you can climb.

      Plus if you're going out that way and the only reason you're there is to climb the rock I pity you. It's a beautiful place regardless.

      • +15 votes

        and the only reason you're there is to climb the rock

        Nobody said it's the only reason… But if you can't climb the rock then there less reason to go…

          I agree with JV…. Wonders never cease!

          Why would I bother going that far to walk around Ayers Rock? I'm pretty sure that tourism will drop substantially after this week.

        Thanks for the pity. I have stuffed it in my sock draw with all the other pities. They are having a pity party.

    This Saturday (26th October) is the last date you can climb the rock, they are removing the chain walkway from the 28th.

    No rock to climb = no reason to go there.

      You can still go to see a big rock in the middle of the desert for only $156.

    • -2 votes

      No it's not.

      Last day is the 25/10. No climbing from and including 26/10.

      And tourism will continue to kick on there anyway.
      Until they introduced the ban hardly anyone climbed it in any case.

      Reality is the rock is owned by the local indigenous community, with a lease-back. There were always conditions to potentially restrict the climb, and several have been met. If you've got a problem with that then tell me where your house is so i can climb on that whether you like it or not.

      There have been other issues with the climbing. People are having a dump at the top, causing the whole site to get polluted so they can't drink the water even if they wanted to. It's also driving a scar into the rock itself. If you're ok with that then send me your mother's ashes so i can dump in that as well. Your culture won't like that, so if you expect me to have any respect for it you should respect the local indigenous clans culture as well.

      Cue racist jerks…

    The Uluru is beautiful and magnificent, you don't have to climb and pee on it to appreciate its beauty. There are no designated toilets on top of the rock, and most tourists who do climb answer the nature's call on top of what is a sacred site to the traditional owners of that land. How would you react when moronic tourists, climb your religious / sacred sites like a Church/ mosque or even Gallipoli and shit on it.

    The base walk around the Uluru is 10KM and will take you 3hrs to complete the walk if you are fit enough, it is bigger that you think and good luck capturing all that magnificence on a photograph usually taken from 5KM away.

      Or take a segway!

      •  

        South Park Jesus and The Phantom don't need a Segway. That would be a pretty cool way though. Thanks.

        • +1 vote

          It's possible that The Phantom is booked to go to the rock very soon, and if the segway path wasn't so expensive would probably use them.

          Climbing is an interesting though - when i was a kid it was almost a right of passage to take a bus trip to the rock and climb it. But i'm cool with the ban, and i'm surprised they didn't hit it earlier.

          •  

            @DisabledUser256231: I'm neither here not there, but I am glad that alternatives (like Segwaying) have been introduced. Hopefully there is no downturn, for the sake of those who work there or benefit from the tourism.

            • +2 votes

              @Daabido: The management plan mentions three independent bases for the climbing ban, one being that the Board "is satisfied that adequate new visitor experiences have been successfully established".

              My take is they waited for a suite of tourist options to get well established before introducing the ban.

      you don't have to climb and pee on it to appreciate its beauty

      This applies to a lot of things. You don't have to ski to appreciate Perisher. Ban skiing there and see how it fares as a tourist destination.

    •  

      If it took 3 hours and I didn't make it clear that I expect tourists to follow a "shit in your handbag" policy, I'd probably say "fair enough"

      The poo should not be a gamechanger because it can be dealt with responsibly. I don't leave turds/wee from my toilet training kids wherever I go.

      Native title and safety issues.. that's another matter.

    •  

      Not trying to be an ass here, but I presume 10,000 years ago, people still answered nature's call all over the rock. We shouldn't be doing it as a mark of respect, but it's not as though it never happened before white people.

      • +5 votes

        Hush, don't dare to use logic when you have so many snowflakes waiting in the shadows to be offended!

        They could easily get around that issue by placing a few portable toilets at the top and charge you $10 to cover costs.

      •  

        Yes but we do it far "better". Read any of the "outback" 4WD and camping/touring websites and you might be surprised at just how filthy some travellers are in their own country.
