That's a really important sacred thing that you are climbing... You shouldn't climb. It's not the real thing about this place.
And maybe that makes you a bit sad. But anyway that's what we have to say. We are obliged by Tjukurpa to say. And all the tourists will brighten up and say, 'Oh I see. This is the right way. This is the thing that's right. This is the proper way: no climbing.'
Kunmanara, Traditional Owner
The climb is not prohibited but we ask you to respect our law and culture by not climbing Uluru.
We have a responsibility to teach and safeguard visitors to our land. The climb can be dangerous. Too many people have died while attempting to climb Uluru. Many others have been injured while climbing. We feel great sadness when a person dies or is hurt on our land. We worry about you and we worry about your family. Our traditional law teaches us the proper way to behave.
We encourage you to think about the other great ways to experience Uluru - taking a cultural tour or dot painting workshop, a ranger-guided tour or one of our many walks to discover the many surprising natural wonders of this landscape. Visit the Cultural Centre first and find out just what's in store for you at Uluru.
By choosing an Indigenous tour or experience instead of climbing, you'll be supporting Anangu - not only will you get a better understanding of our culture, you'll be helping boost Indigenous businesses and creating jobs for Mutitjulu and other communities.
