Overview

Bicycle hire is available from Outback Cycling's mobile bike shop at the Uluru Kata-Tjuta Cultural Centre. You will find us set up daily in the parking lot. With options for everyone, the whole family can ride around the base of Uluru, getting you up close to the amazing sandstone monolith! If you don't have your own transport, our Bus 'n' Bike package is perfect for you. Ensure you bring plenty of water, sunscreen and appropriate clothing for bicycle riding, and most importantly... your camera! Look for the Outback Cycling rig set up in the Cultural Centre Carpark inside the National Park. Bookings highly recommended.

Hired bikes to cycle around Uluru. Very friendly Manager. Great service. Bikes were great and we felt it was the best way to meander around Uluru. Great experience. Would do it again. Thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our bike ride around Uluru-Ayers Rock. Much easier than walking. Worth the money.
