    Is there any way to do a day trip to Ayers Rock (Uluru)?

    I am trying to plan a trip from Perth, but the arrival and departure times are too close. I don't mind transiting another city on the way back.

    Any ideas?

    Also, do you earn SC on Qantas Link? Do you get GOLD priveleges?

    thanks

    I don't think that there is a sensible way of doing a day trip there and actually being able to see anything

    Travel on Qantaslink for benefits et al is exactly the same as for normal mainline qantas

    BNE & SYD
    Travelling back to Syd from LA a few years ago I sat next to a NY based travel agent who told me that she planned on doing a day trip to Uluru from Sydney in a hire car, needless to say I managed to talk her out of that possibility.

    No. At some times of the year there are a couple of flights from SYD and you'd get a couple of hours there by taking the first one out and the second one back, but not really long enough to see much. Plan for an overnight stay.

    It's possible - you could fly to Alice and charter a light aircraft.

    Expensive - but possible.
     
  6. Chucksta, you can certainly earn SCs on QFLink. I got to WP in 6 months purely on QFLink. As for GOLD privileges the Ac from PER is a 717-200 with either 115 or 117 economy seats so I guess the only benefit you will get is preferred seating. Enjoy the trip:!:
