For tourism operators
Introduction of Family and Children's tickets
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is introducing a new family pass from 1 April 2016, providing a 15% discount for larger families compared to buying individual tickets. It will cover two adults and two or more children, with additional children included at no extra cost. Until then fees remain unchanged.
Children 5-15 years will pay half the adult entry fee ($12.50). This will bring Uluru into line with most other attractions around Australia. An annual pass for children (5-15 years) will be introduced at half the adult rate ($15).
Children four years old and younger will remain free.
Your Park Pass directly contributes to the preservation of Uluru’s World Heritage cultural and natural values, with 100% of park pass revenue being invested directly back into the park. This helps pay for the visitor services and facilities you enjoy, as well as payments to the traditional owners, supporting their homelands, training, and business development
The changes have been announced well in advance, to allow the tourism industry time to adjust and reflect the new 2016 pricing in marketing materials.

We’ve prepared two sets of guidelines to make the process of applying for a tourism operator permit or licence simpler. Please refer to these guidelines to determine which one you need.
- Commercial tourism operator permit guidelines (PDF - 2.89 MB)
- Commercial tourism operator licence guidelines (PDF - 3.06 MB)
Additionally, all tour operators must have successfully completed the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Knowledge for Tour Guides program.
You will need a permit if you want to carry out a routine or standard activity into areas of the park that are generally open to the public without a limit on numbers.
This covers most tours in public areas around Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
If a tourism activity is a new proposal and is limited by type, location, number of operators or involves exclusive use of a site then the activity must operate under a tourism licence. Tourism licences are issued with a minimum five year term.
