About the Guidelines
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is a World Heritage Area renowned for its exceptional natural environment and the living culture of its traditional Aboriginal owners, known as Anangu. Anangu and Parks Australia welcome filmmakers, photographers and painters to the park. We ask you to work with us to help respect Anangu culture and protect this unique living cultural landscape and the fragile desert ecosystems for future generations.
Anangu own the park and lease it to the Director of National Parks, who manages it through Parks Australia. The lease requires Parks Australia to take steps to safeguard Anangu traditions.
These guidelines have been developed to help you carry out your work. They have been drawn up in collaboration with traditional owners and representatives from the tourism, film and photographic industries. The guidelines are a compromise between protection of Anangu culture and the requirements of visitors. They have been agreed to in the spirit of joint management and are approved by the park's Board of Management.
The guidelines will help you have a better understanding of the park's World Heritage values.
