Tourists Climb Sacred Uluru in Australia for the Last Time

Tourists Climb Sacred Uluru in Australia for the Last Time

Share This Content
Indigenous Australians celebrated as Uluru was permanently closed to climbers.

The indigenous community had long demanded that the iconic landmark in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park be closed to the public.

The ban was a unanimous decision made two years ago by 12 members of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Board of Management.

But it's an outcome that has divided both indigenous Australians as well as the wider world.

Hundreds of anxious tourists gathered at the rock before dawn to grab their last opportunity to scale its 348-metre (1,140-foot) summit.
