Erldunda

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Erldunda is a tiny town in the Red Centre of the Northern Territory. The village describes itself as a superior roadhouse. Erldunda has a population of just 50 people. A lot of people pass through it, as it is the turn-off from the Stuart Highway (Darwin to Port Augusta) to the Lasseter Highway for Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Alice Springs is roughly 200 km and Uluru is 250 km away.

Get in[edit]

Due to its location, there is only one way to get to Erldunda - via road. Any vehicle that is registered can travel on the road. Some of the most interesting arrivals have been 'racing tractors', the Variety Club Bash cars (a charity event), and every year various V8 Supercar transporters stop to use the facilities on offer, as they make their way from Victoria to Darwin.

Buses between Alice Springs and Adelaide will stop there.

Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

Just next to the roadhouse is a big shelter that is fenced off. On closer inspection, you will see that it is home to two massive creatures -- an Echidna and a Frill Neck Lizard, which were used in the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games opening ceremony.

Day trips from here to Uluru and to Kings Canyon are easily done from here, with accommodation considerably cheaper than what is available at the resort there.
