Is it hard to operate such a resort in the middle of the desert?

The logistical challenges of running a high tech resort in such harsh terrain are enormous.

Everything about the Resort reflects sensitivity to the environment and respect for the area’s traditional owners.

Who owns Ayers Rock Resort? Why is there only one resort in the region?

Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia is a subsidiary of the Indigenous Land Corporation (ILC) and operates Ayers Rock Resort on its behalf.

For more information about Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia: Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia

From 60’s to early 90’s, there were more accommodation operators in Uluru. In 1992, The Northern Territory conducted a review of commercial Resort operations and infrastructure. 8 years of competition at Yulara (where Ayers Rock Resort is located) had failed to deliver sufficient returns to warrant ongoing public sector ownership and management, accumulating $90 million of debt. All hotels came under one management as Ayers Rock Resort Company was formed.
