WOW! So glad to get this started. --Evan 11:32, 21 Jan 2004 (EST)

The website writes several words with underlined letters: Uluru, Kata Tjuta, Anangu. What does this mean? -phma 22:11, 29 Mar 2004 (EST)

I remember reading about it somewhere, but I forgot where exactly. If I remember well, these sounds are made with the tongue curled upwards and with the tip of the tongue touching the top of the palate instead of the front or the teeth. Dhum Dhum Akubra 11:21, 30 Mar 2004 (EST)

Yulara (Ayers Rock Resort)

The Pioneer Backpackers Lodge

An excellent place to stay - cabin accomodation all newly decorated, clean, nice linen, and they had thought of every last detail. Cost $41pppn and was worth every cent! Staff were friendly and helpful. Within the lodge part of the resort there was: A pool, a pool table, gift shop, a bar $12 per jug of VB), bottle shop open until 9pm (unsure of prices), a restaurant, a guest kitchen if you had bought your own food, and a 'cook your own' barbie where you can purchase a variety of meat or fish, cook it yourself, and then help yourself to the all you can eat salads, side dishes and sauces. Cost between $23 and $27 depending on what meat you had - very good value when you see what sides you get with it all - a meal fit for a king! Ayers Rock Resort offers a variety of accomodation from camping through to 5* but the resort is spread out well into the sections of different accomodation. There is a shopping centre approx 5 mins walk from the PBL which has the following: IGA supermarket, Restaurant, Take-away, a couple of gift shops, a newsagents, an ANZ bank and ATM, and a post office. There is a petrol station not far from PBL in the opposite direction. Pretty much everything you could possibly need out there - and all within 10 mins drive of ULURU!

Greyhound Australia

There is no Greyhound Australia bus service between Alice Springs and the National park anymore. There are a number of different companies that run tours there however. The Rock Tour is one, and Greyhound Australia does resell their tours. Corvo 21:56, 1 June 2009 (EDT)

Ayers Rock

Regarding this edit, I've heard of Ayers Rock but didn't know it has a new name, so I would think "also" is correct in this instance. Is it politically incorrect to use the English name, or is there some other reason not to state it as an alternative? This sounds like an issue that is similar to the naming of "Denali" / "Mt. McKinley", but I (obviously) know next to nothing about Australia. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:56, 26 April 2011 (EDT)
