We know flying is the quickest way but we want to take our campervan from Melb to Uluru and return. We only have 12 days.
Can anyone help with the following:
1. Is April school holidays or September school holidays the better time to travel ie (least amount of tourists?!!)
2. I know it takes 3 days each way to get there from Melb but can you return via another route from Uluru to see other places rather than driving back the same way? ie could we come home via the Flinders ranges or would this take too long?
3. Is it worth visiting Alice Springs - we're not really into towns unless there are lots of attractions to see.
4. Will 6 days be enough to explore Uluru, The Olgas in Kings Canyon?
Hoping to hear from someone VERY soon as I've just found out I have to book my leave by Thursday if we want to travel in April!!
Many thanks for your time and hopefully you can assist with our decision as many Trip Advisors have done so in the past.
