I’ve mapped out a tentative map of the shape of the tour:
It’s roughly three sections:
- Perth to Alice Springs via the Great Central Road
- South from Alice Springs to Port Lincoln via the Oodnadatta Track
- Return to Perth via the Great Australian Bight
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 Let’s just hope that Wikipedia is totally inaccurate/out of date on that score.
