Tourists planning holidays to Australia may be pleased to hear that they will still have the option to climb Uluru.

Anyone booking flights to Australia who intends to venture into the  country’s red centre, may be interested to hear the latest news about the region’s most famous landmark, Uluru.

In its latest management plan for the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, the Northern Territory’s government announced that the Uluru climb will not be closed unless “significant conditions are met”.

These include providing alternative experiences in the park for travellers or if the number of people who want to climb Uluru falls significantly.

Gerry McCarthy, acting minister for tourism, commented that the decision “gives certainty to our central Australian tourism industry and opens up the opportunity to develop a range of new experiences for visitors showcasing this wonderful tourism asset”.

He added that, if the climb is to close, at least 18 months notice will be given.

Last year, a new viewing platform was installed at the stunning natural feature to offer people a great location from which to see the sunrise over the rock formation.
