The monolith of Uluru and the domes of Kata Tjuta were inscribed as a World Heritage property by UNESCO in 1987, as a natural heritage site, and then as a cultural landscape in 1994. This area is linked to one of the oldest Indigenous belief systems in the world.77
“Growing interest in learning about indigenous culture also places greater pressure on these custodians to share their knowledge with tourists. Whether to share knowledge, what to share, how to present it and who should do so – these become important management considerations which can only be assessed in consultation with local communities.””78
