We're a couple traveling to Ayers Rock mid February (not the best time to visit but this is the only option we have) and we will there for 2 nights.
Day 1: Arrive Uluru @ noon - visit Uluru/Kata Tjuta/Sunset view
Day 2: Drive to Kings Canyon, head back to Uluru
Day 3: Fly out @ noon
We plan to rent a car for the whole trip and from rough calculations, it got summed up to cca AUD 220 (got quoted AUD160 for 2 days 2WD car rent from economy car rentals + AUD60 for fuel)
1. Will we have enough time to cover the places we'd like to visit on day 1; as we'll be arriving at noon?
2. Is it too ambitious to do a day trip to Kings Canyon and returning back to Uluru on the same day? We figured it'll be better this way as we have to fly out from Uluru the next day.
3. Is the fuel estimation for 700KM OK, with current price at that area? I believe most tours will cost both of us much more than self-driving.
Many thanks in advance guys!
