Thank you all for the info. I have put one of those net/bug hats on my amazon list [will look in stores around here too]. Yes will be there xmas/new years 2018/19

We bought the Princess pre-cruise tour so they are transporting us all over. So yes, flying alot. Didnt look into how long the flights would be yet but great to know. WOW, that changes my thoughts on times, but is EXACTLY what I was asking about.

Cairns overnight then to Ayers rock 2 nights and back to Sydney. Where they are only feeding us breakfast [one lunch] I was wondering if we had lots of afternoon time free and wanted to have a list of options if this happened. Sounds like we will have very little down time. Having never done a bus/land tour organized I wasnt sure what to expect. Have always done our own and therefor know pretty much the times.

Thanks again for all the help.

We took a pre-cruise tour but with a private company called Kensington Tours. They took care of every detail from the time we landed in Auckland to our embarkation on the ship and smiled while we changed plans a lot. The guide found us a place to get a nice dinner Valentine's night at a very reasonable price. So you might try them for a day trip.

Another company we used for all our tours off the ship was Viator who were excellent and cheaper than the excursions off the ship. Smaller buses and guides that truly loved their jobs and really wanted to convey to your their love for their areas. I'm sure they have tours in Sydney.

We found the breakfasts so bountiful that we could make sandwiches for lunch or dinner. They didn't seem to mind and even provided to-go boxes at a couple of places.

We were there in February and you sure needed them then. I would still get them as November would be equal to our June which would sorta be their summer. They were $7 at the resort shops and I've seen them a lot cheaper elsewhere even from catalogs I get here.

Did you try typing "weather at Ayers Rock in early Nov" into Google. Works every time and takes about 10 seconds. Also try Wikipedia which also takes about 10 seconds and gives you a lot more information about Uluru including the climate data.

BTW - the proper term for the location is Uluru, not Ayers Rock.
