The 81 Stops

I’ve mapped out a tentative map of the shape of the tour:

osborne park wa to osborne park, western australia 6017 – google maps

It’s roughly three sections:

  1. Perth to Alice Springs via the Great Central Road
  2. South from Alice Springs to Port Lincoln via the Oodnadatta Track 
  3. Return to Perth via the Great Australian Bight

Having done some preliminary research, I have some concerns about the Crime in Alice Springs, particularly the bit in the Alice Springs Wikipedia entry where it says:

Youth crime is a serious problem in Alice Springs, especially at night when large numbers of youths wander the streets of the town unsupervised, committing assaults and burglaries, vandalising property and throwing rocks at moving vehicles.

But I figure we’ll need to pick up some supplies after travelling the Larapinta Drive. Let’s just hope that Wikipedia is totally inaccurate/out of date on that score.
