It is the first time the red centre has made Lonely Planet's top 10 regions list, placing fourth in its upcoming book behind places in Italy, the
United States and Peru.
The Territory may even be a dual winner this time, with the number two spot on the top 10 cities list going to China's Shenzhen, which runs direct
flights to Darwin.
The last time the NT was named on a 'Best in Travel' list was in 2012, when Darwin was ranked 10th in the cities list.
tbh, I don't really agree that Uluru could even come close to being the forth best region in the world to visit... After all, it is just a giant rock
in the middle of the desert.
Still though, it is a pretty amazing sight to witness... You can literally see it from nearly 100 kms away when driving there, since its just this
massive red rock in the middle of this flat land before time type of primitive desert landscape.
What I really find interesting about this article though, is the ban on climbing the rock and how this geologist has filed a claim to the human rights
commission, claiming racial discrimination... Since the Aboriginals will still be allowed to climb the rock, but us white fellas will be
IDK, I'm kinda torn... I didn't personally climb it when I visited, out of respect for the traditional owners... But I was going though a hardcore
hippy trip at the time.
tbh though, it did seem like a whole lot of fun to climb.
So, is it racial discrimination to deprive us poor white people from climbing the rock? Or is it just genuine social justice for the traditional
owners to deprive us white folk of the right to climb the rock?
