Visit to Uluru

by hsm Online Now Jan 18, 2010 at 9:04 AM

My friend and I are planning to visit the Uluru geological site.
We have 2 choices of flying from Sydney to Ayres Rock or Sydney to Alice Springs. GRAY LINE has 2 tours to ULURU. The first one starts from Ayres Rock at 12:30 pm and finishes at 7:30 pm. The second one starts from Alice Springs at 6:30 am and finishes at 11:30 pm; its such a long trip. Is the first trip better than the second one considering that our main interest is the Uluru geological site?
Thanks

    If your main interest is Uluru Iwould fly into Ayers Rock.

    An alternative could be flying into Alice Springs and a trip (guided or rental) car to Uluru, visiting Glen Helen, Mereenie Loop and Kings Canyon.

    happy travels

    This really depends upon WHEN you are visiting Uluru. If you are going in the cooler months, the afternoon tour will be ok- but if its hot, and it gets VERY hot in late spring/summer- take the morning tour (from Alice Springs).

    I think you should allow a couple of hours for finding that friend of yours when he wanders off. (Hi Jess)
    But seriously, it is a long way from Alice Springs to Uluru, the shorter trip will not give you much time at the rock, assuming that they are both by bus.
