Yulara is a tourist town in the south eastern region of the Northern Territory. It is very isolated, being just outside the border of Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park. In 2006, Yulara had a population of just 1,606. The name comes from local Aboriginal words for "howling dingos". Yulara is 18 km by road from Uluru (Ayers Rock) and 55 km from Kata Tjuta (the Olgas).
