Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory, Australia

A sign at the base of the Uluru climb, warning tourists that the climb is closed.

Tourists are rushing to climb world heritage-listed Monolith, Uluru in Australia's central desert before a ban on climbers takes effect. The date of the closure, 26 October 2019, will be 34 years to the day since Uluru was given back to its traditional owners the Anangu people who have long requested that visitors not climb the sacred site.
