Visting independently? It'll cost you $35 to get the Uluru Express to Ayers Rock. Get the sunset tour with combined walk, it's the same price as the sunset tour alone. The Olgas are $50, the gorge walk is quite disappointing though. Don't forget you need to add $25 to all this for the park three-day pass. Bring a mosquito net -- flies will drive you mad.
Ayers Rock is located in the northern territory of Australia and it's the perfect destination if you want to experience the real outback of Australia -– the Red Centre area. Ayers Rock is located in the middle of this huge country and it's well known for the amazing landscapes, different from everything that you have seen in Australia –- even though it's an expensive option, you definitely don't want to miss it. Ayers Rock is also known as Uluru (a big rock formation of sand and stone three hundred fifty meters high) and it's located more than four hundred kilometers from the main city in this area, Alice Springs. The amazing and different colors of Uluru through the day invites visitors to see the sunset and sunrise in this spot –- the contrast is fantastic.
During your stay in Ayers Rock, you cannot miss a camping tour of three days and two nights, known as the Rock Tour, where you will get to know more about the geology of the region, the aboriginal culture, and much more. In this tour you can visit the Kings Creek, the famous Kings Canyon (where you can take a three-hour hike), the Valley of the Winds in Kata Tjuta, the Aboriginal Cultural Center. Enjoy the sunset and sunrise on the amazing Uluru and take a beautiful walk in Uluru area. As you are camping, you can enjoy beautiful images of the clean sky and see a lot of stars before you get to sleep right in the middle of Australia.
Ayers Rock has a few hostels, but are more expensive than in Alice Springs. Ayers Rock hostels have good facilities, but need to be booked in advance, especially in the high season.
