Now climbing is not banned, but the traditional owners of the land, Anangu, would prefer people not to climb Uluru.
"It is an extremely important place, not a playground or theme park like Disneyland", Board Chairman and Anangu man Sammy Wilson said.
Climbing the Uluru rock in Australia will be banned beginning in October 2019, after a board unanimously voted to end the practice.
From 2019 visitors to Uluru won't be allowed to climb the iconic landmark rock in Australia, traditional owners have decided.
Figures show only 16 per cent of visitors made the climb during its open times between 2011 and 2015.

The park board in 2010 indicated it would close the formation to climbing if the activity was declining and if other park experiences were attracting visitors.
Anangu owners make up a majority of the park's board and would have been able to institute a policy change without the backing of the non-Anangu board members.
"Closing the climb is not something to feel upset about but a cause for celebration". According to Parks Australia, the climb is the traditional route taken by Mala on their arrival at Uluru, and the path is of great significant to Anangu. "Let's come together; let's close it together".
"The path left by rubber from the soles of climbers' shoes is visible from kilometres away and some tourists leave litter and damage the rock".
