Macca. Have just been accross there. West to East. Last ULP is at Tjukayirla roadhouse. Next ULP is Uluru. Approximate distance from Tjukayirla to Uluru is 800km. All have diesel. Good road most of the way.

HI! Just completed that trak Mon/Tues this week. (got back to Perth yesterday). We fueled up at Ayers Rock and also had 4x 20 l cans plus a 10 l. When we got to Tjukayirla (pronouced "Dook a yerla" we still had just over 1/4 of tank left. We have a 2000 Pajero towing the equivalent to a Jayco Swan (not off-road). The road was corrugated about 70% of the way with the Southern End being better than the northern. We were advised by people at Ayers Rock not to stay at caravan Park in Warburton as the petrol sniffers will do anything to steal your fuel - pick locks on cars etc. We stopped about 30 kms South of Warburton on a side track for the night and had no probs. Hit one roo about 200kms before Laverton - only roo we saw all trip! Bull bar paid for itself! (had also hit an emu on the nullabor - still no damage!)
