Yulara (Ayers Rock Resort)

Getting around

A free shuttle bus meets all flights and drops off at all accommodation points around the resort, and the shopping centre, every 15 minutes from 10.30am to 6pm and 6.30pm to 12.30am daily.

Uluru Express (8956 2152; www.uluruexpress.com.au) falls somewhere between a shuttle-bus service and an organised tour. It provides return transport from the resort to Uluru ($35/20 adult/child, $40/20 for the sunrise shuttle). Morning shuttles to Kata Tjuta cost $50/25; afternoon shuttles include a stop at Uluru for sunset and cost $55/30.

Hiring a car will give you the flexibility to visit the Rock and the Olgas as often and whenever you want. Car-hire companies Hertz (8956 2244) and Thrifty (8956 2030) have counters at the Tour & Information Centre in the resort shopping centre – both also have desks at the airport, as does Avis (8956 2487).

Bike hire is available at Ayers Rock Resort Camp­ground (8957 7001; per hr $7, per half-/full day $15/20, deposit $200; 7am-8pm).
