Things to see and do with a car rental in the Ayers Rock Airport area

If you love the great outdoors, then you couldn’t have picked a better spot to visit. There are so many sights to explore, from Uluru and Kata Tjuta to the stunning Kings Canyon. All of these attractions are easily accessible when you’ve got your Thrifty rental car.
Uluru is one of Australia’s most iconic sights, and the ancient rock formations of Kata Tjuta are stunning in their own right. Head to the national park and settle down to watch the sun set over the breathtaking landscape, or get up early to catch the sunrise over these landmarks. Either way, it’s an experience you’ll never forget. And while you’re in the park, you can also enjoy a range of different bushwalks, or learn about the history of the area in the Cultural Centre. 
Kings Canyon is about three hours from Ayers Rock Resort, but it’s well worth the drive. Once you reach the red sandstone cliffs, you can enjoy a stroll around the rim walk or explore the canyon floor – the perfect spot for taking a snap of those epic red sandstone cliffs. It’s sure to be a highlight of your trip!
