The best way of seeing things is to hire a car but they were all fully booked while we were there so we used this, more expensive option. Works well but pre-booking a good idea so not quite hop-on hop-off. Drivers give helpful advice.

The tour was very expensive and not that great. Buses don't come by often and you can end up easily waiting half an hour each time you hop off to catch the next bus. Transfers between the two loops can be even longer and the...More

To get to Ayers Rock you have to either book a guided (group) tour, rent a car (which you have to do a pretty long time in advance) or you take this bus. The costs are 160 aud$ for a 2-day pass, which is pretty...More
