Last November, I wrote a post on this blog about a proposal to build a golf course at Uluru (see https://dazzlerplus.wordpress.com/2012/11/05/uluru-golf-course/#comments). According to a comment on that post from reader “Kate” today (August 9, 2013), the proposal put forward by Mr Koos Klein of Voyages Indigenous Tourism (a company which runs resorts near Uluru) to build the golf course is still very much alive. As I said in my post, I regard the proposal as insensitive and inappropriate in the extreme. So does Kate.
May I suggest that you drop a note to the Minister for the Environment, Mr Mark Butler, at mark.butler.MP@environment.gov.au and tell him what you think of this outrageous idea.
Mr Klein is reported as saying ”There is not much to do there in the eye of many tourists other than visiting Uluru and Kata Tjuta [the Olgas], which for many of us should be enough, but we are talking here about the average tourist who is looking for things to do.”
What would you be inclined to say to Mr Klein and some of these average tourists who are stuck out there at Uluru with nothing to do?
