Ayers Rock
The 'Ayers Rock Resort' is most suited to couples and families. Although there is nothing much to entertain the very young, a weekday child-care centre exists for children aged 3 months to 8 yrs.

Accommodation at the 'Ayers Rock Resort' caters for most budgets from 4-star luxury to basic backpacker bungalows and a large campsite, all well maintained and designed to make as little impact as possible on the environment.

The accommodation is managed communally and guests of one hotel are welcome to use the amenities of others; fees are charged to their own hotel bills. Due to the lack of competition, accommodation is expensive by normal Australian standards.

Entertainment and attractions at the resort consist mainly of a regular programme of talks and walks, covering subjects such as the local environment and the Aboriginal lifestyle, free tour of native gardens, wildlife predator show.

By night, entertainment is limited to hotel bars with live music at the Outback Pioneer.

Excursions here consist primarily of tours to Ayers Rock and the Olgas. There are also small-plane and helicopter scenic flights, Harley Davidson motorcycle tours, camel tours, cocktails at sunset tours, cultural Aboriginal tours, day trips to Mount Conner, Petermann Range or Kings Canyon.
