Perched within an oasis of native gardens, the Desert Gardens Hotel’s 218 elegant guestrooms provide a relaxing retreat from a day of adventure.

The contemporary indoor area flows seamlessly to an outdoor terrace, surrounded by the native greens of the iconic gardens of the hotel.

What to do:

Travelling for one hour on our friendly camels in the spectacular desert landscape. Bringing you closer to nature, our skilled cameleers tell you stories of the territory. With stunning views of Uluru and Kata Tjuta, watch the colour change as the sun sets from atop a sand dune. Return to the farm at twilight to relax and enjoy Australian beer, wine, champagne and outback bush foods including our famous freshly baked beer bread damper.

Never has an early morning start been more rewarding. The silent morning air that encompasses the desert landscape of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is filled with gasps and amazed ‘ooohs’ and ‘aaahhs’ as the first group to wander through the desert paths are met by four acres of flowing fibre optics lights. With the majestic Uluru in the background, begin to fall into silence as you take in what is truly an unforgettable and life-changing experience. These otherworldly spheres of light are internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro’s latest art installation, Field of Light, and his largest to date, with him and his team installing more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted glass spheres in a remote desert area within sight of majestic Uluru.

Uluru Audio Guide has over 100 stories covering Uluru’s Aboriginal culture, history, geology and everything in between. The audio guide is available as both a downloadable app or a physical device that can be hired from our reservations desk. The audio guide is is designed to allow your own Self-Guided Touring around Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. 

Location & how to get there

Ayers Rock Airport, also known as Connellan Airport ( https://uluru-australia.com/about-ayers-rock/ayers-rock-airport/), provides unparalleled access to the remote UNESCO World Heritage site of Ayers Rock (Uluru). This unique and magical geological formation is about as remote as anything in Australia, and it takes a lot of travel time to reach it.

The nearest town of note is Alice Springs, some 470kms away. Many travellers fly into Alice Springs and make the five-hour drive to Ayers Rock. But an even faster option is to fly directly into Ayers Rock Airport, which is just 20 minutes by road to Uluru.

Around 300,000 travellers fly into Connellan Airport every year on their way to tour Ayers Rock. It’s a quick 20-minute drive from the town of Yulara, where the airport is located, to Ayers Rock, and there are plenty of transport services available to get visitors where they need to go.

The airport itself is about as modest as they come. A single terminal contains only the most basic amenities. But the options for food, drinks and travel sundries are usually enough to satisfy the average traveller. The great thing about the airport is that it’s so small that there is never anything remotely like congestion or long lines. This is one easy airport to fly into.

How to fly to Ayers Rock?

Several Australian carriers provide regular service into Yulara, the town where the airport is located. From Sydney, there are direct fights four times a week with both Virgin Australia and Jetstar.

The Sydney connection is the ideal flight for international travellers looking to get straight to Ayers Rock from a global destination. Qantas link is another good carrier offering regular flights from Alice Springs and Cairns. Fly Tiwi is an option for travellers coming from Darwin.

Several transport companies are on hand at Cornnellan Airport to ferry passengers to their final destinations around Ayers Rock.

Many people opt to stay right in the town of Yulara, where a couple of full-service resorts provide all the amenities and comfort one could want in this remote part of Australia.

The Airport also features special scenic flights over Uluru on helicopters and light aircraft for a really unique view of the sacred mountain.
