Perth-Alice Springs-Uluru-Sydney itin/tour suggestion

Hi Experts

Pls help on our trip plan:

Perth: does it make sense to have one day for Pinnacles and one day for wave rock by driving?


Fly to Alice Springs on Sept 1 by Quantas and start the trip from Alice to Uluru on Sept 2. We wish to find tours that ends at Uluru so that we can fly Jetstar flight at 14:20 to Sydney on either Sept4 or Sept5. Any suggestion on itinerary or tour?

Ok - so you are in to rocks...

The Pinnacles in a day is fine - an easy 2 - 2.5 hours each way from the CBD.

Wave Rock on the other hand - 4 hours without stops each way? Not for me in a day.

You don't need a tour for your Alice Springs to Uluru trip -- just rent a car and drive. It doesn't sound like you are planning to spend much time in Alice Springs anyway, so perhaps it would make more sense just to fly in and out of Uluru's airport and save yourself the long drive from Alice Springs. Two or two-and-a-half days at Uluru should give you plenty of time to see both Uluru and Kata Tjuta.

Should you decide to make the drive between Alice Springs and Uluru, remember not to drive after sunset due to the number of animals on the road after dark. Since sunset is around 6:30 pm in September, most of September 2nd will be spent just getting to Uluru--a 5.5 to 6 hour drive.
