Golf at Uluru? Please don’t.

A story on the Stuff website tells of a plan to put a 28ha golf course near Uluru.

This quote was unbelieveably pathetic and unbelieveably…. well, unbelievable.

”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,” the Voyages managing director, Koos Klein, said.

The average tourist looking for things to do? Hello?!!!! You are at one of the most spiritual places in the world. I would love to visit Uluru and I would love to do nothing but appreciate where I am.

We do too much to pander to people who don’t care what happens to a place tomorrow or next week, but want entertainment today.

Like the Routeburn Tunnel… but don’t get me started on that one (yet).
