Fees, permits, flora, fauna and climate infos for the Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, Australia

Fees & permits:
A three-day permit to enter the National Park costs $25 per person. A permit to enter the park may or may not be included in a tour you book. Ask your booking agent if your tour fee includes the permit to enter the park.
If you enter the park when coming from the east ,via the Great Central Road (dirt road which comes from Western Australia), you don't have to pay an entrance fee. But if you want to stay there at least for 2 days, you would have to camp at Yulara. Yulara is outside of the gates of the National Park. So then you would have to enter the park at the second day again and would have to pay the entrance fee then. But that way you could see the park complete 4 days and just have to pay for 3. :)

Flora and Fauna:
Apart from the two main features (Uluru & Kata Tjuta) the park also protects hundreds of plant species, 24 native mammal species and 72 reptile species. To protect these, off-road access away from Uluru and Kata Tjuta is not allowed. Camping is also only allowed at the campsite of Yulara.

Climate and best time to visit:
In December and January, the temperature can be blistering hot, and some areas may be closed for travellers' safety. July, August and September offer a more temperate climate, although still warm enough to work up a sweat at mid-day.
