Uluru (Ayers Rock) to Alice Springs One-Way Shuttle image
Travel from Uluru (Ayers Rock) to Alice Springs in a deluxe coach with a professional driver who shares informative commentary about the sights you pass during the 6-hour journey. Avoid the worry and expense of flying or renting a car and leave the driving to the professionals with this one-way transfer that provides door-to-door service in a comfortable air-conditioned coach.

Bonus: have the chance to spot wildlife and view more of central Australia’s magnificent landscape, including Mount Conner (Attila) and the West MacDonnell Ranges.
Your luxury coach picks you up at your Ayers Rock hotel early in the afternoon. Meet your driver and get comfortable in the air-conditioned coach, which provides spacious seats and ample luggage storage.

Travel east from Yulara via Curtin Springs, an enormous family-owned cattle station that has been in operation for more than 60 years. Look into the distance to see the bulky form of Mount Conner (Attila) as your coach continues east to Erldunda. Stretch your legs during a rest stop at Mount Ebenezer Road House. You can also browse artworks made by local artists from the Imanpa (Aboriginal) community and purchase tea or other refreshments.

Then connect to the famous Stuart Highway, the principal north-south route through central Australia, and ride along a 124-mile (200-km) section of this key road to reach Alice Springs. View the impressive West MacDonnell Ranges, another example of this area's intriguing geological evolution. This 500-million-year-old mass of twisted quartzite stands as one of Central Australia's most dominant land forms, and is riddled with deep gorges and chasms.

Listen to informative and entertaining commentary provided by your driver as you travel through striking Outback landscapes. Learn about the geological history of the region, Australian desert flora and fauna, and some of the traditional customs and beliefs of the Aboriginal people who have inhabited this area for more than 20,000 years.

View groves of desert oaks, many of which are many hundreds of years old. These resilient trees survive in the harsh climate by sinking tap roots deep into the earth and remaining dormant until water is found.

You may be able to watch an onboard video about Australian wildlife. You can also keep an eye out for critters in the desert as you travel.

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

I made a huge mistake arriving at Yallara airport instead of Alice Springs. My experience started when I spoke with an angel who saved me named Judy who works at AAT kings head office. She went out of her way to make sure I got a lift out of there to go to AS. Another driver who waited with me and called out to the one and only bus that had just left to go up to AS. Vinnie was so kind and caring and made me feel not so silly and safe whilst we waited for the bus to come back and pick me up. Adam arrived to pick me up and the ride up to AS was one of the highlights of my trip. Adam knew so much about everything to do with the red centre. He entertained us with his knowledge and jokes for the entire 6 hour trip. In summary what could have been an absolute disaster and I would have had to probably sleep at the airport as there were no rental cars or accommodation in Yallara, The entire AAT kings crew made me feel safe and their level of kindness and compassion was something I've never experienced before in any business. It truly blew my mind and resulted in a such an amazing experience that I will always remember. I was on another tour a few days later and Vinnie recognised me at a pitstop station. He was so interested in how I was doing. Thank you AAT Kings for having such an amazing team of people.

There was nothing memorable. The driver needs to read up on NT HISTORY/Culture which was promised when booking the trip. Not give history on NSW and his up bringing. Also a better time management.

Pleasure of being driven in a comfortable air conditioned coach. The driver providing relevant commentary on the journey and an appropriate number of toilet, eating and stretching leg breaks.

AAT Kings cancelled the shuttle the day before (despite it being booked through Viator for 3 months) and AAT Kings confirmed the booking at the Yulara desk 3 days before. So left high and dry - a terrible experience! Used Emu Run - fantastic company, as they were so helpful and provided a great service at a cheaper price.

Great commentary from the drivers. Despite the very late and often uncertain return trip to Alice, everything went well and I enjoyed the trip.
