Australia to ban climbing on Uluru from 2019

Climbing on Australia’s iconic Uluru landmark will be banned from October 2019, local authorities have confirmed.

The board of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park voted unanimously to end the climb because of indigenous sensitivities.

The giant red monolith in the Northern Territory is a sacred site for Aboriginal Australians.

Local people have long asked visitors not to climb the outcrop, which was known for many years as Ayers Rock.
