I have booked a trip to Kakadu and Uluru in July. We are flying to Darwin and hiring a 4WD camper. As I am limited by the Qantas cheap flight luggage requirements I want to know if I should take my heavy 120-400and a . I'm not as fit as I was years ago and can not lug a too far from the car. I'm considering taking a instead but worried about the sunset photos. I want to take as many different types of photos as I can, birds, waterfalls, sunset over Uluru etc.
Besides Uluru, Olgas and Kings Canyon are there any other 'must see' places near Alice Springs?
Any help with gear and places to visit or objects to photo (macro?) will be very welcome. I am using a 50D with a EF28-135 f3.5-5.6 IS USM, nifty fifty, SP AF17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di IIVC LD, Extension tube EF25.
