The township of Yulara is situated outside Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, about a ten-minute drive from the entry station.
Most of the town is made up of Ayers Rock Resort, an Aboriginal-owned enterprise that provides accommodation, restaurants and other essential services to people visiting the park. There are shops, several art galleries, conference facilities and a fantastic day spa.
The resort offers a wide range of tours and activities for guests who don’t have their own transport.
Yulara is also home to the National Indigenous Training Academy, which provides employment and training opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The workforce at Ayers Rock Resort is now more than 40% Indigenous employees.
Ayers Rock Resort is operated by Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia.
