Australian Traveller - - The 100 -

Last year was a big one for the Rock – the wishes, cul­ture and law of the tra­di­tional own­ers, the Anangu peo­ple, were fi­nally of­fi­cially re­spected and from 26 Oc­to­ber 2019, you’ll no longer be able to climb up this sa­cred place, an area of se­cret men’s busi­ness. It’s a de­ci­sion that re­in­forces what a sig­nif­i­cant site Uluru is for its tra­di­tional own­ers, some­thing that makes a jour­ney to this most fa­mous of out­back des­ti­na­tions so re­ward­ing. Uluru isn’t just a great photo op­por­tu­nity, some­thing to be con­quered; it’s a jour­ney to the core of Anangu ex­is­tence and a part of Tjukurpa, the foun­da­tion time and place within which an­ces­tral be­ings cre­ated the Uni­verse, laws and cul­tural ways.
