If shipping from Europe, maybe Perth is the closest … then 3 easy days to Alice Springs via Laverton and the Great Central Road (on the dirt).
But, it’s all a matter of preference. Alice Springs is as easy to get to from any coastal city, and this is a good reason for the start and finish from "The Alice"; it's fair to everybody.
