Uluru

Posted: December 6, 2018 15:32

Uluru holds incredible importance to Aboriginal people, which is why from October 2019 the controversial climbing of Uluru will be banned for good. But don’t despair! There are so many other, more respectful, ways of appreciating this Aussie beaut which are way more enjoyable than hauling yourself up the rock face.
