Most of the businesses had reopened and they were welcoming back the tourists.

This shopping centre had all that you need for a short break away.

The IGA was well stocked and very buzy with locals and tourists grabbing essentials.
We enjoyed wandering through the shops purchasing souvenirs and enjoying a coffee in the fresh air.

There were several free activities that we enjoyed and it was peaceful watching the painters working on their art pieces in the park.

Such a relief to be able to shop and get groceries at reasonable prices considering the remoteness of the site. I was even able to buy a blanket for the evening without breaking the bank. Staff were efficient and polite.

Due to the pandemic at the moment, many businesses are closed therefore you really cannot give it a high score. In saying that, when I was here some time ago, it was a thriving metropolis. There is a great IGA store with an excellent range of goods. Remember you are in the desert and very isolated, so do not expect regular supermarket prices. Only one gift shop was open but again, the resort has only just reopened. Thankful for the lovely area.

The shopping centre covers most of the basics; ATM, iGA, tour info office, clothing shops, souvenir shops, restaurants and cafes. Just double check open times to access good. We arrived around 2:30 in the afternoon and only the Gecko had food options.

For a small community it had lots of things, I was surprised. The newsagent was fabulous so many things. I found som3 books there that I couldn’t fine in other places. IGA was okay, but would have been better if their freezers were working. It was great to be able to buy water and bread, if this is what you wanted.

A local living in the Alice. Went to Uluru for my birthday. Stayed at the Camp Grounds in a cabin and that was ok. Price was reasonable and the staff were great.
Went to the 'Bottle Store' to buy a bottle of wine. They were charging 3 time the price as anywhere else. 'Get over it you say, its a tourist spot!'. Rubbish! Stop ripping off the public, including locals, just cause you can. There is absolutely no justification for the prices charged in many of the venues at Yulara/Uluru including the fuel prices.
How do we as locals get to enjoy our own country when we're constantly out priced and cant afford to even see the dam place?
By the way, the wine price was just the tip of the iceberg.
No thank you.

I was impressed by the variety of shops in the Ayers Rock Resort Shopping area. I loved the newsagent / gift shop and found lots of treasures in there, including reasonably priced books. I was impressed to find that the IGA stocked many items at a comparable or even cheaper price than the Coles in my home town in Central Queensland. This was an unexpected surprise as we had predicted very expensive grocery prices.

Arriving at AyersRock/Uluru airport (Connellan Airport) by Jetstar from Sydney on Easter Sunday we began a great all too short stay in central Australia. Waiting at the airport were three AAT Kings coaches clearly marked with their destination to the hotels at Ayers Rock Resort. Ours was for the Emu Walk Appartments and a very relaxing 20 mins drive from the airport was accompanied by a short but interesting introduction by the driver. The arrival and the return trip are complementary.

The resort is built around the protected sand dune called Imalung Lookout. A free shuttle coach operates at regular 15 minute intervals around the resort but we found walking to be easy and very enjoyable allowing us to take in the various shrubs and trees and grasses that abound the whole area. Alternatively a free Indigenous guided morning tour is also available. A walk up Imalung Lookout gives a wonderful view of Uluru(Ayers Rock) and also Kata Tjuta in the distance.

Three hotels at the resort The Desert Gardens, Sails in the Desert and Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge together with the Emu Walk Appartments offer high standard accommodation.
Completing the picture the Resort Town Square provides a good shopping centre with restaurants/cafes a well equipped supermarket ,tour offices, a postoffice ,The Ayers Rock campground. medical center, Emmergency Services and Police.

At the resort passes $25/person (three days use) must be purchased for travel into the Uluru Kata Tjuta national world heritage listed national park. Either drive yourself or use the many tour groups,the latter providing very interesting cultural explanations to visit the sacred sites of Uluru and Kata Tjuta.

We both enjoyed a wonderful experience and because we were unabl to take in all that we wnted to do will be back to complete our outback experience.

You have not visited Uluru unless you have walked with Leroy Lester, an aboriginal docent who gives free tours of the small museum and native plantings in the commercial center at Ayers Rock Resort. He also gives bush talks on the lawn.

In his tours, he does nothing more than review panels in the museum and stop by plants along the sidewalks. But in his quiet, lilting style, he delves deeply into philosophy, politics, anthropology and history and leaves you with a more profound understanding of your surroundings than you ever could have imagined.

His quiet, direct descriptions, especially about the history of his people, are all the more powerful in understatement. He is such a spellbinding storyteller that you never want him to stop. Leroy Lester is the best docent we have had on any subject anywhere in the world. He should be declared a national treasure.
