Gateway to the outback
Everything here is not really backpackers friendly. Which means that there is hard to find something for the price for backpacker. If you wish to come here you might want to have spare or extra budget, compare to other places in Australia. But it is so worth to come here (and Uluru). It's not the place for you to party or shopping. It's all about nature and culture here.
Insider Tip:Try to join the camping tour to the Uluru instead of one day tour coz the experience is gonna be different. Trip to the red centre require extra budget.
