Located within the spiritual heart of Australia, Ayers Rock Resort is not only a cluster of accommodation offerings but also the hub for tours, dining experiences and free Indigenous activities, making it a unique destination.
Ayers Rock Resort Accommodation
Ayers Rock Resort encompasses five accommodation options from Sails in the Desert hotel, award-winning Desert Gardens Hotel, Emu Walk Apartments, Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge to the Ayers Rock Campground.
The highly successful Artist-in-Residence program features an Australian artist and a regular Australian craftsperson to work within the Resort and create art in situ, as well as to exhibit and sell their work.
For the local Indigenous people, the whole area is of enormous spiritual and cultural significance and it is extremely important for visiting media to be aware that strict photography and filming restrictions are in place.
Despite the often harsh climate, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is home to hundreds of different animal and bird species. One of the best things about a visit here is to see some of this wildlife in their natural habitat.
Scientific know how enables the Resort to source all of its water & generate its own electricity locally, but almost everything else to deliver sustenance, comfort & enjoyment has to be transported long distances.
Archaeological work suggests that Aboriginal people were living in this region at least 22,000 years ago. Tourism started in Uluru in the 1950s and 2014 marks the 30 year anniversary of Ayers Rock Resort.
Witnessing a sunset and a sunrise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta is an awe-inspiring experience and a ‘must-do.’ Watch the remarkable changing colours of Uluru as the sun rises or sets over the desert landscape.
