Not a lot of choice - Uluru National Park (Ayers Rock)
Yularu Resort: Not a lot of choice

Approx 22 kms from the rock and on the outskirts of the National Park is the tourist 'resort' of Yularu. It has been built specifically to accommodate the hordes of tourists that now descend on the Park.

The next accommodation is some 200kms away, so to come here you are basically a captive audience - and sadly the costs reflect this. Even taking into account its relatively isolated position, the prices charged are way over the top.

In spite of there being a choice of accomodation, the whole complex is owned by the same company:-

Sails In the Desert - by far the most expensive (A$450-550 per room - I kid you not!) is pretty luxurious but extraordinarily lacking in character or atmosphere.

Desert Garden (A$320-370 - the latter with views over the Rock). Chalets or small blocks, the deluxe rooms are huge with 2 double beds (the only real option if you don't mind sharing rooms but not beds). But again, a little like an airport waiting room in the public rooms, although nice pool

Outback Pioneer - (A$300) - this is the luxury end the rooms in this complex within the complex.If you want to pay these sort of prices, I'd go for Desert Gardens - this is the place with the most atmosphere re bars etc so can get a bit noisy!

The Lost Camel (A$170) is probably the nicest place, pretty funky (see annathrax's pages) but aimed at couples - one double bed only per room

Outback Pioneer Lodge (A$150/170) much more basic cabins with either shared or en suite facilities as well as. Also have dorm accommodation in small and large dorms (A$30-50)

There is also the camp site.

Its worth remembering that youhave access to all facilities throughout the complex - so you can use any of the pools where ever you are staying.

Unique Qualities: The accommodation is fine, the prices not!

Comparison: most expensive

Theme: Other
