Inma (ceremony) at Uluru
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List for both its natural and cultural values.
The park was first added to the list in 1987, when the international community recognised its spectacular geological formations, rare plants and animals, and outstanding natural beauty.
In 1994, UNESCO also recognised the park’s cultural landscape – the unique relationship between the natural environment and the belief system of Anangu, one of the oldest societies on earth.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is one of only a few dozen places in the world to have received a dual World Heritage listing (and one of only four in Australia).
Parks Australia has a responsibility to protect the park’s World Heritage values for the benefit of everyone. We work with Anangu to do this, using a combination of traditional knowledge and modern science to care for country.
