Uluru Strip Causes Faux Outrage

The Sunday Territorian has reported today on French-born exotic dancer Alizee Sery who climbed Uluru recently and did a tame semi-strip tease which was filmed. You can see the article and a short interview that she did with reporter Daniel Bourchier at http://www.ntnews.com.au/article/2010/06/27/159265_ntnews.html

David Ross, the director of the Central Land Council, has told the ABC that the “woman’s stupidity” is indicative of the many people who ignore the traditional owners’ request not to climb the rock.  Ross said that the Climb should be closed and asked Prime Minister Julia Gillard to deport the woman.

However the real outrage should be directed at Parks Australia, a supposed “public service” organisation which has squandered millions of dollars on the Talinguru Nyakunytjaku viewing area in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park which is in the wrong spot for sunrise viewing. That is the real crime if any has been committed.

One Response to Uluru Strip Causes Faux Outrage

  1. Mark Newman says:

    The Australian government is oppressive when it comes to park regulations. Aside from no longer being able to view your iconic monolith in good light due to an inattentive surveying job placing the new $21 million viewing area in the wrong place, there are so many rules governing what a visitor and hiker and photographer and artist can and cannot do that Uluru is no longer worth visiting. If all the parks are similarly restricted then a serious traveler may as well find another country to visit and bypass Australia entirely. We in the United States are free to roam our 400 or so national park units and take photographs as we please. I have taken such freedom for granted for decades. Why would one want to visit your parks if there are so many restictions in place that they could not be freely enjoyed? Makes no sense.

    Sincerely,
    Mark Newman
