Getting to Uluru
You can fly to Uluru (Ayers Rock) via Jetstar or Virgin Australia from all Australian capital cities. Connellan Airport is the name of Ayers Rock’s airport. It’s located 10 minutes drive from Yulara (Ayers Rock Resort). There are free shuttle buses and hire car desks at the airport.
A flight from Sydney to Ayers Rock takes around three and a half hours; from Melbourne, it takes about 3 hours. Alice Springs to Ayers Rock Resort is a 1 hour flight or a 4.5 hour drive (450kms).
International guests may like to consider a Qantas Aussie AirPass for a more convenient way to include Ayers Rock (Uluru) in their itinerary.
While most Yogis will fly into Uluru for the Auspicious event of Shri MahaGanesha Puja, some may like to travel by coach as a cost-effective option and to see the beauty of Australia by road.
There are now two coach options available… one coach will be departing from Sydney and the other from Adelaide.
Please see details below including how to book and pay for your seat. We ask that payments are made by 1st June 2019.
