Guests staying at Ayers Rock Campground have full access to resort amenities, including free daily programming such as guided walks and Indigenous bush yarns. The campground’s facilities include a swimming pool, a playground, BBQ and outdoor kitchen facilities complete with a shaded eating area, and self-service laundry facilities. Shared toilet and shower facilities are located close to all sites. Cabins are equipped with cooking utensils, bedding, and towels, but campsites are not.
At the resort, you’ll find a well-stocked supermarket, restaurants and bars, a petrol station, gift shops, galleries, a Touring & Information Centre, and much more – everything you’d need to pick up last-minute supplies or forgotten items.
In addition to camping essentials (tent, sleeping bag, head torch, folding chairs), be sure to pack layers of clothing – since it gets chilly overnight, bring a beanie, gloves, and lightweight layers you can peel off as you warm up. Don’t forget sunscreen, sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat, and lip balm. Bug repellent and a fly net can also be useful items for keeping pests away. You’ll want sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and a water bottle or canteen, and make it a point to drink 1L of water for each hour you spend exploring outside.
Other items to pack: a swimsuit and towels, personal electronics and chargers (you’ll want a camera, at the very least!), binoculars, and high-energy snacks like nuts and bars to fuel you for a day of exploring. You can stock up on snacks at the IGA supermarket located at the resort.
