Driving from Melbourne (Fitzroy) to Uluru (Ayres Rock)

Over the Christmas break, I plan to drive the immortal distance from Fitzroy in Melbourne to Uluru, Central Australia. I have never driven this far in Australia before, and luckily I will be with my dapper co-pilot, Sebastian from Cuenca in Ecuador (who I met during that other monumental road trip).

From that famous Australian road trip movie…

 

Thankfully we will be in an air-conditioned car with an icebox full of Coopers beer, and not on a moto, that wouldn’t be wise in the Australian desert during the height of broiling Summer.  We only have 14 days, which is relatively tight given the distance to The Rock, so an itinerary is obligatory.  Here it is (and I will blog along the way).

  1. Port Fairy, VIC (22/12)
  2. Adelaide, SA (23/12)
  3. Coober Pedy, SA (24/12)
  4. Uluru, NT (25/12)
  5. Uluru, NT (26/12)
  6. Kings Canyon, NT (27/12)
  7. Kings Canyon, NT (28/12)
  8. (somewhere in the desert) (29/12)
  9. Alice Springs, NT (30/12)
  10. Alice Springs, NT (31/12)
  11. Coober Pedy, SA (1/1)
  12. Laura, SA (2/1)
  13. Dimboola, VIC (3/1)
  14. Fitzroy! (4/1)

If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear from you.
