Uluru (Ayers Rock) to Alice Springs One-Way Shuttle

West MacDonnell National Park

Skip the hassle of driving or rural airports with this scenic, one-way shuttle service to Alice Springs. After early morning pickup at your Ayers Rock hotel, settle in to your roomy seat aboard a deluxe air-conditioned coach. As you travel east across the famously rugged Outback of the Northern Territory, your knowledgeable driver-guide will point out passing attractions and share tales from the area’s Aboriginal and colonial history. 

Pass by Curtin Springs, a huge family-owned cattle station, and admire the giant mesa of Attila (Mt Conner) in the distance. Stop to stretch your legs at Mount Ebenezer Road House, where you can purchase tea or snacks and admire Aboriginal artwork by the local Imanpa people. 

Connect to the iconic Stewart Highway that bisects Central Australia, and drive along the majestic gorges and peaks of the West MacDonnell Ranges. Learn about native flora, including hardy desert oaks, and look for Outback creatures like camels, thorny devils and bearded dragons. 

At the end of the 288-mile (463-km) journey, the door-to-door service concludes with drop-off at your Alice Springs hotel. 

Please note: You may transfer coaches at the Kings Canyon junction before continuing to Alice Springs.

More than just a shuttle service from AAT Kings! Easy and comfortable way to get from Yulara to Alice Springs.
We stopped a Curtin Springs for refreshments and had a nice view over to Mount Connor, where we tasted bush tucker berries underway.

This trip was very successful for us. We were collected exactly on time, the bus was very comfortable, the driver very friendly and informative and arrived on schedule too. We were brought from door to door of our hotels on both sides. Overall a worthwhile experience and good value for what we received.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

The drivers are friendly. The thing I love and enjoy the most along the trip is that the drivers provided good introductions to the history and environment to the surrounding scenery while driving. Maybe the distance is too far and made the trip become rusher, I feel that the time spent in Curtin Springs and Erldunda Roadhouse is a bit too short for me. Overall, I will rate this journey a 5 star rating as I am really satisfied.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

We enjoyed this one-way shuttle very much as it was a great way to see more of the outback and we were dropped off at our resort in Alice Springs.

Whist this was just a shuttle bus from one-place to another, the driver provided an excellent commentary of the country-side we drove through. You can fly from Uluru to Alice Springs, but I recommend the shuttle! It's a great way to see what the centre of Australia is all about.
