Uluru climbs finishing up
A ban on climbing Uluru comes into effect on October 26.
Since it was announced in 2017, more than 140 people have been climbing the rock daily, but in the last few weeks there's been up to 500 people scaling the sacred rock.

For almost 20 years, the Pilgrimage to Uluru has been taking young people from across Australia on an annual journey. We travel across many Aboriginal nations and listen and learn as best we can. When we reach Uluru, we do not climb. The Anangu people are pretty clear about not climbing Uluru, so we engage with the stories and the rock from the ground, and we learn and listen. These youth of Australia do not climb, and they know why it's important.
Unfortunately with all the people, comes all the rubbish they are leaving behind. Tourists have been trespassing, camping illegally and dumping rubbish on private lands.
Have you ever climbed Uluru/Ayres Rock before?
