Stephen.
One approach is to request information from the readers of this forum.

Another is to look up Explor Oz treck notes and various 4wd club treck notes.

I did the trip recenly and if you wish to Email me I will gladly supply you with whatever informtion I can.

I reckon the best way to research a trip is to GO! Work A to B and the time you've got. Hit the road, stop and look at anything that takes your fancy. Collect any brochure, touring guides, Explore Australia etc and read up as you approach a town. Stop and ask at a milk bar, service station or post office as to what there is to see. DO NOT GO TO TOURIST INFORMATION places as they will try to flog you trips and tours. Unless you are into these things of course. Make notes of what you want to see next time. If you can manage, don't be a tourist, be a traveler. There is a difference. Seeya Royce

Stephen, no such thing as stupid questions....only stupid answers. Royce has it right, research as you go. Somtimes setting stritch time tables and expectations detract greatly from a trip. That,s what your going for, to see what,s there and how far it is !!:)

Stephen, There are many ways of getting from Kalgoolie to Ayres Rock. It depende on your vehicle, your sense of adventure, the type of things you want to see, time available and many other things. One way is to drive across the Nullabor to Port Augusta and head north thus staying on the black stuff, or go Leonora / Warberton on the great central road if you want a good quality dirt road, or my personal choice would be Sandstone / Wiluna / Gunbarrel Highway / Surveyor General's Corner etc. having obtained the appropriate Permits. A good way from Ayres Rock to Alice Springs is Simpson desert / Birdsville / Fraser Island / Cape York / Burketown / Darwin / Broome / Marble Bar / Punmu / Garry Junction Road / West Macdonnells / Alice Springs. You could also go Lassiter Highway / Stuart Highway, or Luritja Road / Kings Canyon / Mereenie Loop / West Macdonnells / Alice Springs which is the way I have been. It's up to you! Make a plan and try not to stick to it. Talk to people along the way and change your mind when ever you like. Have a great time. Mal Try.
