Exploring Uluru

Exploring Uluru, Alice Springs, Australia (B)

The whole town, the accommodation, and many of the tours are all owed by one company – Voyages Indigenous Tourism. It is about 15km from the rock, so if you don’t have a car then you have to pay for transfers or tours every time you want to go anywhere – see my travel tips post (to come)

We stayed at the Outback Pioneer Lodge, which was a bit tired, and I had cocked up the dates we had booked – but we managed to get that sorted and upgraded to a nicer room. The resort had a nice pool and a bar and a couple of different dining options. It is also the only place in Yulara that you can buy take-away beer – which, while still being expensive, it was a much cheaper option than buying each bottle over the bar!

We got settled in and then headed out to the rock to explore. Park fees are AUD$25.00 per person and that is for a 72 hour period.
