Season’s Greetings | Old Uluru postcard

 

It’s time to dig out those old photographs of you in your mini-skirt at Uluru or maybe it was flares at Kata Tjuta.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is collecting old photographs, video and audio recordings taken at the park and the surrounding area to build a visual record of this world heritage landscape.

Whether you worked at the park, lived in the area or travelled through we’d like to hear from you.

We’d love to see pics from when the resort was in the park – before 1985 – when you may have taken photos of Indigenous people making arts and crafts. It would also be wonderful to see pictures of rangers guiding visitors – or perhaps we will see some of the amazing rescue operations they have undertaken.

The material will be safely stored with the park’s cultural materials and also used for future displays at the Cultural Centre. We’re also keen to use it as a learning tool to show young Anangu the history of their land and for older members of the community to share memories.

If you have something in your archives that is pre-1990 please let us know by emailing me at Uluru– Kata Tjuta National Park craig.woods@environment.gov.au. Please do not send original printed photographs or tapes –  just digital copies!
