Ecotourism Australia supports the Traditional Owners’ announcement of the closure of the Uluru climb.
Sara Vitali, Sustainable Tourism World founder’s respect the decision and agree with it.
The Traditional Owners don’t want people to climb, the vast majority of visitors to Uluru choose not to climb, other experiences have been developed and the tourism industry has had at least a decade to prepare for the closure (and another year from now). This closure is an opportunity for visitors and the tourism industry to show respect and for new experiences to be developed which increase cultural understanding.
This closure is an opportunity for visitors and the tourism industry to show respect and for new experiences to be developed which increase cultural understanding. Already, tourism experiences such as six different walks around Uluru, five walks through Kata Tjuta, Segway Tours, a Fork and View Bus and Dining Tour as well as a large range of other activities from the Cultural Centre have been developed.
