My best friend and I are driving from Melbourne to Cairns from the middle of January until the middle of March 2017. We're considering going to Uluru at the end of our trip, but seeing both flight tickets and tours are quite expensive, we're nut so sure it's worth it? We're two 19 year old girls from Norway, living on a budget, but if Uluru is as amazing as some people claim it is, we'll try to make room for it in our budget.
If you do think it's worth the money:
1) Should we fly directly to Ayers Rock, or Alice Springs?
2) How many days should we stay in the area?
3) Is it possible to experience the best of Uluru on our own, or should we book a tour? If you think we should book a tour, do you have any recommendations on where to book it (maybe a website?) and for how many days? It doesn't need to be fancy at all, we just want to see the amazing nature as well as learning about the history of the area (aboriginals, the formation of the rock etc...)
Thank you so much in advance
