Introducing Yulara (Ayers Rock Resort)
Yulara is the service village for the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and has effectively turned one of the world’s least hospitable regions into an easy and comfortable place to visit. Lying just outside the national park, 20km from Uluru and 53km from Kata Tjuta, the complex is the closest base for exploring the area’s renowned attractions. The village includes a bank, a petrol station, emergency services, the resort’s four hotels, apartments, a lodge, a camping ground and a supermarket. Yulara supplies the only accommodation, food outlets and other services available in the region. If it weren’t in the middle of the desert within cooee of the rock you’d baulk at the prices here; as it is, you’re stuck with it.
