I paid $260 a night for a room with two sets of bunk beds (with a bathroom and toilet in the room however). I felt like I was in the backpacker resort! And February is off season!! I dread to think how expensive it is in the high season.
I have to say the place was clean and well kept - but I guess unless you have your own accommodation you have to pay those prices if you want to visit Uluru and the Olgas.
The outback Pioneer was the cheaper of all the places to stay in the resort.
We went to the Field of light tour for $39 - and all they did was take you 2 kilometres down the road on an air conditioned bus and let you wander through the exhibition. Not worth it.
Also I got upset being served a beer for $10 in plastic cups!! Why??
I came away from seeing those very famous places a bit ripped off. They have a captured market and squeeze the tourists dry....and there is a $25 per person charge to enter the National Park. It’s OK, it contributes to the up keep of the Park - but it just adds to all the extra, exorbitant pricing.
Even camping I heard is well over priced for what you get.
Not happy Park and Wildlife Northern Territory!! More
