Melbourne to Uluru via Adelaide and / or the GOR, departing 1/7
Posted June 5th, 2013 - 5:11 am by from Wedderburn, Australia (Permalink)

Hi Everyone :)

I am thinking of planning a trip from Melbourne to Uluru departing on the 1st July (about 7pm) and returning either to Melbourne or Adelaide on the 10th July.

I have a car, its an old toyota sedan but it will definitely be up to the task.

I was looking in to some of the costs and fuel will be somewhere between $1000 - $1200....(i am over budgeting slightly but fuel will be expensive in some of the remote places so its better to be realistic). Expensive I know but its a 5000km round trip.. Hence there is no way I would do all that by myself. HOWEVER if I managed to get a few people together. Say 4 :) then if each of us chipped in $350 for fuel and car costs then it sounds like a much better idea!

Flights this time of year are about $350 each way..

I am happy to camp or use hostels were available and ultimately I am looking to do this as cheap as I can.
