Ayers Rock Airport

Ayers Rock Airport, Northern Territory is also known as Connellan Airport and resides near Yulara, approximately five hours from Alice Springs. The airport is only about 20 minutes driving time from Uluru, or Ayers Rock, itself. More than 300,000 revenue passengers use this airport every year. The airport was begun by Edward Connellan, who started Connellan Airways. The airline specialized in transportation, mail runs, and Royal Flying Doctor Service. Qantas had given the airline planes called “Butterflies,” and Connellan also used Douglas DC3s. Due to the impact of tourists and tourism on the environment, it was decided that airport activity would be relocated outside the park. The tourist facility that developed was called Yulara and included a new airport. The facilities were in operation in 1984. In August of 2000, the Olympic Torch arrived at the airport from New Zealand, and was carried for a run around Uluru. Ayers Rock Airport has a passenger terminal with baggage claim, check-in desks, customs screening, vending machines, and passenger lounges. National Geographic has a shop in the terminal, and there are bus bays and short term parking outside. Qantas and Virgin Australia service the airport passengers, and Jetstar will begin flights in 2013.

A Different Perspective

You can scale Ayers Rock without damage to your knees or other joints, by taking a flight around the huge formation. Charter a plane or helicopter at the Ayers Rock Airport or at Kings Creek Station, and see it from the air. Observing the surrounding landscape against which the rock stands is unforgettable, at least. Make a memory flying over the George Gil Range and see cattle and camel stations.

Ayers Rock by Camel

See Uluru (Ayers Rock) the same way explorers did in the 19th century…on a dromedary. You can choose from sunrise or sunset rides that are quite short, or do a full exploratory adventure around Kings Creek Station. Watching the sun against the huge red rock is a marvel, whether on camelback or not. Sunrise rides include an outback breakfast of damper and billy tea. Sunset tours include a tipple and bush tucker.
