Japanese tourist dies climbing Uluru


A 72 year old Japanese tourist dies whilst climbing Uluru. There are clear sign placed by

traditional owners requesting people not to climb.Only around 16% of people visiting the site actually climbed Uluru.

Uluru is UNESCO  World Heritage-listed and was handed back to its traditional owners in 1985. The ban on climbing the monolith  will commence on 26th of October 2019.

The date was set in order to ensure there was no disappointment and people who had already committed to visit the site had time to undertake the climb.
