This modern, ochre-coloured hotel makes an convenient base from which to explore the Park. The hotel’s 99 rooms are bright and lively, with an eclectic mix of Indigenous and European décor.

The property offers an outdoor swimming pool and small bar, but guests have access to the dining and touring options at Ayers Rock Resort.

The Lost Camel will appeal to families, singles and couples alike – indeed, anyone looking for clean, affordable accommodation.

Surrounding area

The Lost Camel Hotel is one of several properties clustered around the Ayers Rock Resort town square in Yulara. Around the square, there’s a modest collection of cafes and shops – there’s also a cashpoint, supermarket, post office and tourism office. A free shuttle bus operates in the resort, with departures every 20 minutes.

Yulara is a settlement consisting of a few low-slung, modern buildings, a few gum trees and plenty of red dirt. While busy, Yulara is rarely crowded – it’s a different story at Uluru where the carpark is packed with campervans, coaches and hire cars.
