Driving between Alice and Ayers
by Helen Macklin
(West Midlands, UK)
How many gas stations are there between Alice Springs and Ayers Rock, in other words, are they so few that we would need to fill up at each one? Also how many times would a trip of that distance require us to fill up if we set off with a full tank (intermediate size car)?
Secondly, and most importantly, we are driving back from Ayers Rock to Alice on Christmas Day, for a connecting flight to Cairns after 4pm- can you please tell me if the gas stations will be open on Christmas Day.
