alice to ayers rock and back in a day?

by aserafic

hi,
i with 2 mates are attending a wedding in alice on the 1st october. my mates and i have decided to spend a day to see the rock if possible the following day 2nd october. We're all flying back to sydney and melbourne on the 3rd october, late morning and midday. Is this doable or does anyone recommend seeing other sites instead. I think this is our only chance to see uluru ever. we have booked an intermediate car for 3 days when we are there (although we can cancel if it's not needed and we are all staying in voyages alice springs resort. is there an art gallery that can be recommended for up and coming indigenous artists?
appreciate any advice on these 3 clueless city boys.

Yes it is possible,it's around 920 K's return from Alice to Uluru.

Seeing as it is 460K's each way, about 4 plus hours drive, I would suggest that you leave early morning from Alice. ( Maybe that means only a few drinks at the wedding:))Then off to the Rock and back again....if I were you I wouldn't bother worrying about a sunrise or sunset, just go and see the rock, the drive isn't hard, all sealed roads and seeing that there is a couple of you, you can share the drive. I wouldn't do any of the driving at night, but having said that, if you are all wide awake and you travel at the recommended speeds, you could do a sunset and return after that, whatever you are comfortable with.

If I was in your boots and it is the only chance you will get to see the *Rock*, yep I wouldn't hestitate to go for that drive.

There are many art gallerys in Alice Springs,in the main Mall area and also a few in the side streets. It's really a matter of finding something you really like. Some are very expensive, maybe Google Aborginal Art in that area and have a browse of names etc.
Have a great time...

Yes it is doable in a day and advice from anne is very good.The chance should be taken to see Uluru and Kata Tjuta within Uluru National park.The only difference I would make is to stay overnight at Erlunda Roadhouse (motel,bar, meals etc)on the way back.This is about halfway back at the junction of the two highways. The two hours you save here will be invaluable at the rock. You can leave rock about 3.30pm and get to Elrunda on dusk. Good time to be off the road with the roos.Otherwise you should leave about 1.30pm.The two hour trip from Erlunda back to Alice the next morning is comfortable and will meet your schedule. If Uluru is a step too far in distance and petrol plus $25 entry fee per person into National park (3 day pass but well worth it) then the best option is to do a full day trip out from Alice along the West McDonnell ranges. This is where the gaps, chasms, waterholes and gorges are located and is a great trip out to Glen Helen gorge(end of sealed road) and back.Easy access in conventional vehicle with short walks in to all the well signposted natural attractions.A great day out but the rock is something special also.
Keep sober boys and have a good trip.

Travel Tips for Alice Springs

The Alice river

by chris_i79

One sight you will see while in Alice springs is the river.....or least the river bed. Although I have been told it briefly flows every couple years. I saw at it as a sandy path beside the city. It was quite odd to see bridges with no water underneith them.

Alice Springs Telegraph Station

by Kate-Me

The Telegraph Station is an interesting collection of historic buildings with history of the station, which began transmitting signals in 1871.
It was closed in 1932 and the Post Office relocated. Later it was restored and opened to the public.

Jessie Gap

by iandsmith

There are paintings here too but not as good as Emily but the scenery is better, especially if you go through the fence and/or climb one of the ranges, as I did of course; ever mindful that I wouldn’t want to miss out on a good pic. That’s how I found myself scrambling up a steep scree slope to ascend the range.
It’s a different world up top; the panoramas extend in every direction and here is also the world of the rock wallabies and the peregrine falcons. It certainly takes your mind off whatever else you may have wanted to think about.
As I scrambled back down the daily tourists were surprised to see someone above them on the slope and a comment or two was uttered.
The day before I had gone around about an hour before sunset and watched the birds tuck in for the night.
Jessie is about 17 kms east of Alice.

I knew about the history and the function of RFDS from visiting the Royal Flighing Doctor Service Alice Springs Control Station. The people that profited from this service made the tour siginificant.
