Mutitjulu Swimming Centre

The Pool is open for 2018/2019 Season 

Mutitjulu is located 25km south of Yulara within the Uluru –Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory and is a 50 minute flight or 5 hour drive from Alice Springs.

Residents of Mutitjulu were granted approval on 18 March 2011 from the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Board of Management for the construction of the pool.  Funds received by Traditional Owners of the Park from rent money received from the lease of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park have been set aside for the swimming pool.

Mutitjulu Tjurpinytjaku Centre opened on Tuesday 24 September 2013 and operates each summer season for 28 weeks.
