An Epic Road Trip From Brisbane to Uluru

If you are a Brisbane local who want to explore the most iconic natural wonder of central Australia, Uluru, which is also known as Ayers Rock, I recommend 4WD hire as the best option to reach the destination. The journey is bound to be one of the most amazing outback adventure road trips of your entire life. Such mesmerizing memories can’t be experienced while traveling in a flight. 

Uluru is the most visited Australian landmark found in the aboriginal red center territory of the country. There is no doubt I can put it in the ‘top places to visit in Australia before die’. I have been to Ayers Rock for 6 times so far. I have went there with friends and on family holidays too. You simply need to check out the web and you will find many Brisbane 4WD hire suppliers to choose from.

As I am personally an advocate of slow paced journey, I feel passionately for this amazing 4WD road trip from Brisbane to Uluru. Take ample time for this incredible road trip. I would suggest two routes for this road tripping holiday.

Travel Route 1: Brisbane>Mt Isa>Alice Springs>Uluru

Travel Route 2: Brisbane> Mt Isa> Darwin>Alice Springs> Uluru

Both itineraries will take minimum of 10-12 days and more depending on number of stops you make and travel pace. However, If you fly all the way to Uluru and don’t see sunset or sunrise at Ayres Rock, you are ripping yourself. In my personal opinion, 4WD hire in Brisbane is a perfect choice to experience all the thrills and chase the adrenaline rush within. 

If you are one of those travelers who often spare time doing ample homework about the travel, you will find many tips for a 4WD road trip from Brisbane to Uluru. You can also plan for a round trip with Brisbane as a base. Roads to Uluru are in excellent condition. Though long, it’s a fun and easy drive all along!

5. Probably there is no better way to feel how vast Australia is.
