Due to the current Covid-19 emergency, and restrictions on travel, Ayers Rock - Outback Pioneer Lodge is currently closed. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Due to the shared nature of the facilities at YHA properties, YHA requires all guests to provide proof of full vaccination and wear masks in common areas. A safe stay is our top priority so we have enhanced hygiene measures in place, along with social distancing practices. More information can be found here. If you are required to self-isolate or quarantine, please be advised you cannot be accommodated at a YHA property until after this has been completed.

Located in the heart of Yulara township, the Voyages Outback Pioneer Lodge has air-conditioning, a pool, restaurant, kiosk, internet, laundry facilities, foreign currency exchange and car rental company on site. 

This property is not a full YHA hostel but YHA has negotiated a special rate for YHA members. It does not accept either ePacks or Ozabout/Dreamcatcher vouchers. There are some special  booking and cancellation conditions so please read this Ayers Rock Information Sheet.

There are so many things to do in Uluru and you can find and book them here in one convenient location.
