Ayers Rock Resort

The Ayers Rock Resort is better known as the Voyages Ayers Rock Resort, located within the town of Yulara to the north of the famous landmark. This self-contained town/village features several hotels and two campgrounds, as well as a supermarket and other useful facilities. Accommodation styles here range from camping to five-star luxury.

Yulara and Ayers Rock Resort were set up for the needs of tourist, as there is no accommodation or facilities permitted within Uluru National Park itself. The complex is 20kms due north of Ayres Rock, about 450kms southwest of Alice Springs, and a few kilometers south of Ayres Rock Connellan Airport.

The resort was built in the 1970s and 1980s outside the boundaries of the national park, while motels already near the rock were simultaneously removed. There is now no accommodation at Ayres Rock or anywhere within the park, preserving its World Heritage status. Aside from those folks who make daytrips to Uluru, the majority of visitors stay at the Ayers Rock Resort.

The bulk of the accommodation is made up of expensive hotels, usually costing hundreds of dollars per night. These include the five-star Sails in the Desert Hotel and the equally swish Desert Gardens Hotel. There are more affordable lodgings, but great value accommodation is somewhat hard to find; even the campgrounds charge per person.

Tourists should bear in mind that they are in a very remote area however, so it is fabulous that there are any accommodation options so close to the rock. There are also decent facilities and amenities at Ayers Rock Resort, including a super market, a bank, a post office and shops. There are also many bars, restaurants and a petrol station, and all the hotels come with swimming pools, as does the main campground.
