Do you think climbing will be banned in the future?
I do not believe that Uluru climbing will be banned, this is because of the revenue the government makes from tourists who have an interest for climbing. If climbing is banned there will be a loss in revenue because of less tourists and there are still many people who will climb. The government is not going to add security cameras or have a ranger stationed 24/7 to make sure no one breaks the law. It is also far easier.
Do you think it will it will continue to be managed?
Yes I do, this is because most people like to see everyone work in unity to preserve and educated people about the land. If Uluru were to stop being managed by both the Anangu and the Australian Government time would only be heading in the other direction.
Will tourist numbers increase?
Will tourist numbers increase? This depends on multiple factors such as the ban of climbing, the eroding and the management of the land. If climbing is banned there will be many tourists who no longer have an urge to visit. If eroding continues Ayres Rock would get smaller and smaller therefore losing tourists as well. And the management of the land. If the Anangu and the Australian Government stop working together this may deter some people because there is no longer unity and people could start a protest.
Uluru is located in the Northern Territory 463km away from Alice Springs. Uluru is a natural sandstone landform which is the second largest single rock in the world. Uluru has the management of the Anangu (traditional owners of the land) and the Australian Government together. Uluru is funded by the government roughly $1.6 million of which half goes to the Anangu (600 people) and the other half is set aside for the preservation and knowledge about the rock. Uluru is also a world heritage site because it is a natural beauty and the culture.

In some odd way that you don't understand and can't begin to articulate you feel and acquaintance with it--a familiarity on an unfamiliar level. Somewhere in the deep sediment of your being some long-dormant fragment of primordial memory, some little severed tail of DNA, has twitched or stirred. It is a motion much too faint to be understood or interpreted, but somehow you feel certain that this large, brooding, hypnotic presence has an importance to you at a species level--perhaps even at a sort of tadpole level--and that in some way your visit here is more than happenstance. -Bill Bryson
