Need Help With Your Australian Visa


Yulara has its own airport, called Ayers Rock/Connellan Airport (airport code AYQ).

  • Sydney–Yulara: 3 hours
  • Melbourne–Yulara: 2 hours 40 minutes

Many visitors come to the park as part of a road trip around outback Australia.

The famous Red Centre Way is a multi-day drive of this extraordinary region, taking in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Watarrka (Kings Canyon), Tjoritja (West MacDonnell Ranges), Alice Springs and more. You can find out more on the Tourism NT website.
