Hi All
A friend and I are now making new plans as a trip we had planned to Vic High Country has been cancelled due to track closures.. Sooo we have 12days and thought we would like to go out to Ayres Rock. Leaving 6th April - returning 18th April. I have never been out that way and looking for some advice of great places to stopover (Camp) along the way and back. We are self sufficient with well setup 4wds and communications equipment.
all information appreciated
regards Aaron

ps.... like most blokes we love unique / great pubs if any goods ones along the way mention them too please :))

a bit more info on what sort of trip you want will assist.
if its just going to the rock its tarred all the way .
head west from wollongong , turn right at Pt Augusta and left at Eridunda.
get a map and the options are endless corner country, strezecki, oodndatta track william creek, coober pedy etc etc etc.

Gidday Aaron,

We did an Ayers Rock trip in September last year. As we were unfortunately stuck with sealed roads (rental), we stayed at the following places in the area:

Mt. Ebenezer Road House;
Cadney Park Homestead;
Ayers Rock Campground;
Spud's Roadhouse, Pimba (near Woomera).

All are good for the self-sufficient camper. The roadhouses all had friendly staff and good food at reasonable prices (we were doing big km each day).

Ayers Rock Campground is pricey, but clean. A bus service runs around the resort to all the accommodation and shopping centre.

Be prepared to be stung if you use a credit card at any of the businesses on the resort. Use cash or EFTPOS.

12 days might be a bit short without doing the big km each day. There's a lot to see out there!

Camps Australia wide 6, it's not called the campers bible for nothing!!!!

Available from the shop on this very site, just get the basic one to start with, it has all the info but you dont have to pay for misleading (sometimes) pictures.
