Road Trip Adelaide to Ayers Rock
Port Augusta Caravan Park
Hey mate, we are driving from Adelaide to Ayers Rock. We plan to leave Adelaide at 22:00, head to Port Augusta by 2am (rest there), hopefully we can just sleep for a few hours in the car and then leave from PA to Coober Pedy (have lunch there) and then head off to Ayers...
1. Are there any places in PA to crash just for a few hours? we are 5 guys.
2. Also is this is a good journey?
3. What are some of the things you recommend we take in terms of clothing (mid dec)?
4. Do you recommend any other stops along the way?
Hope to tell you our story after the journey.
Jeez, you guys are in a hurry!
I'd suggest that you're looking for proper accommodation in Port Augusta before you head to Ayers Rock/Uluru. After all, you still have more than 1000 km to cover when you leave Port Augusta.
Can't you leave Adelaide earlier to have a good sleep in PA?
You could stay at the Shoreline Caravan Park or the Backpackers Hostel if you're on a tight budget.
Yep, it is a great journey, especially if you take your time
. Coober Pedy is well worth to explore, and stay for a night there.
It will certainly be hot in the red centre in December, so take your hats, sunglasses, sun protection, but don't forget a warm jacket or jumper for a cool night in the desert. Also, take a pair of sturdy shoes if you plan to do some walking. It's no fun to walk in thongs all the time on stony and sandy ground.
Refer to the Stuart Highway main page
for more info about the route.
Hey, it would be great if you come back and tell us about your journey.
BTW, here is a list of great Uluru Tours
, just in case you're looking for a tour.
Have a safe and fun trip.
