Australia | Climbing banned at Uluru, icon of the continent and centerpiece of Uluru-Kata Tjuta NP

SYDNEY, Australia — Visitors to Uluru, a giant sandstone slab jutting from the central Australian desert, have for decades ignored a sign at the rock’s base that politely reads: “Please don’t climb.”
