A terrified Pauline Hanson got stuck while climbing Uluru in protest against the decision to stop visitors climbing the rock.

The leader of the One Nation is a vocal critic of the movement to prevent people from climbing the famous rock and tried to climb it on Thursday.

But in new recordings of her efforts, the politician struggled to reach the monolith in the Northern Territory and complained that she could not come down.

& # 39; Seriously, I can't come here. My boots are so old, & she said as she shuffled along the rock in a preview for one An ongoing case segment on Monday evening.

The senator is said to have reached the rock just 40 meters before returning.

She told it later ABC the short climb was & # 39; scary & # 39; and that she understood why the rock had to be closed for safety reasons.

The leader of the One Nation was an outspoken critic of the upcoming prohibition and even tried to challenge the holy place in the Northern Territory even on Thursday.

& # 39; I respect the decision that there is insufficient safety with regard to the rock &, said she.

& # 39; I respect the decision that their people, their children, will not get a job. They bring Aboriginals from the outside in to fill in the positions that their own people should be. & # 39;

Uluru will be closed to climbers in October after a decision was made to prevent future scaling up of the holy place.

Mrs. Hanson had entered the Northern Territory earlier this week and announced her intention to climb the rock in violation of the ban.

She has previously broadcast her disagreement and even closed the iconic rock compared to closing Bondi Beach in eastern Sydney.

She said the sacred rock must remain open to climb because & # 39; we have been climbing the Ayers Rock of Uluru for many years & # 39 ;.

& # 39; People have been climbing the rock all these years and now they suddenly want to close it? & Hans said to Deb Knight on Channel Nine & # 39; s Today.

Senator Hanson said the closing of the climb in October is ridiculous & # 39; and pointed out that it provided significant income for the local indigenous community.

& # 39; Australian taxpayers are putting in millions, hundreds of millions of dollars, and they want another $ 27.5 million to upgrade the airport there for the resort, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; Now the resort has only recently returned $ 19 million to taxpayers. More than 400 people work there, 38 percent are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

& # 39; It's making money. It gives jobs to indigenous communities and you have thousands of tourists who go there every year and want to climb the rock. & # 39;

WHY DO ABORIGINAL PARENTS ASK FOR A PROHIBITION ON ULIMU CLIMBING?

In November 2017, it was announced that climbing Uluru, considered a holy place by the local Anangu people, would be prohibited from October 26, 2019.

The management of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, consisting of a majority of traditional Aboriginal owners, decided unanimously to close the climb.

Traditional owner and chairman Sammy Wilson said on behalf of the Anangu people that it was time to do this.

& # 39; We've talked about it for so long and now we can finish the climb, & # 39; said Wilson. & # 39; It is about protection by combining two systems, the government and Anangu.

& # 39; This decision is for both Anangu and non-Anangu together to be proud of; to realize, of course it is correct to close it.

& # 39; The country has law and culture. We welcome tourists here. Closing the climb is not something to worry about, but a reason to celebrate. Let's come together, let's close it together.

& # 39; If I travel to another country and there is a holy place, an area with limited access, I do not enter or climb it, I respect it. It is the same here for Anangu. We welcome tourists here. We do not stop tourism, only this activity. & # 39;

Uluru and Kata Tjuta – formerly known as the Olgas – were returned to the Anangu people on October 26, 1985.
