Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park is one of only four Australian world heritage areas to be recognised for both its cultural and natural importance.

18 April 2019

The Traditional Owners of Uluru–Kata Tjuta are the Anangu people, who speak one of the world's oldest languages, Pitjanjatjara.

In an initiative which brings together the ancient and the modern, Anangu community members have worked with Parks Australia, Google and the Northern Territory Government to capture a Google Street View of the culturally significant area.

On World Heritage Day you can take a virtual tour and listen to Traditional Owners share their cultural knowledge, language and stories.

‘We want to teach visitors about the Anangu understanding of this place,' Traditional Owner Sammy Wilson said.

Australia has 19 properties on the UNESCO World Heritage List which are recognised for their outstanding natural or cultural values, or both. It is also the UNESCO International Year of Indigenous Languages.
