Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park (Ayers Rock & the Olgas)

Article Tools

Uluru and Kata Tjuta is a national world-heritage listed park, located in the Northern Territory of Australia. The park is named for its two major features: Uluru / Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta, both of which are the most famous land icons of Australia and a place of spiritual significance for its indigenous peoples.

Commonwealth laws restrict the taking of and use of imagery of Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park. As each commercial use requires clearance the location is not suitable within content offered for commercial use. Content featuring the location may be offered for editorial uses, however access must be granted and permits acquired.  For the full park policy on the creation of photography, film, and sound recordings, please visit the Australian government’s Department of the Environment and Energy website. Keep in mind that a permit does not constitute a property release; it is merely permission to be there and shoot for that time period.  Commercial uses of content featuring the park should be cleared with the park by customers prior to use. 

Lastly, there are several areas that are off limits to shoot, even with a permit for editorial use, as these locations and vantage points are considered sacred. Please refer to their guidelines located here: http://www.environment.gov.au/system/files/resources/b9061590-0291-498b-b8d0-909613c810b2/files/imageguidelines.pdf. And specifically to pages 3-7. Prohibited areas include but are not limited to: the northeast face of Uluru and the southern side of Kata Tjuta. Please also note that on location, there are prohibited areas marked by signage – please abide by these posted placards.
