Thousands of people flock to the Uluru every year to see the World Heritage listed icon.

The root officially closes to visitors from Saturday October 26th.

There has been a rush from tourists eager to climb the rock, since the ban was announced two years ago.

Uluru is a sacred place to many people and the closure of the climb has been longed for by Uluru Custodians for many years.

At least 20% of people who visit Uluru decide to climb it. There have been 35 deaths as a result due to windy weather conditions.

All visitors can still visit Uluru to look at the country, listen and learn.

There are bike and segway tours available too.
