12/06/14 – Well we are packed and ready for another adventure and this one is a beauty. We are off for 8 weeks to the Kimberley region. This has been on our bucket list for sometime and yeah we are finally going. This is our first trip to Western Australia, we have lots of amazing places to see and things to do on this trip, we are very excited about this one 🙂
This is a map of our proposed trip a lot of km’s to cover, biggest trip yet for us. Over 12,000km’s and this is not including any side tracks. This is just the route, doesn’t list all the places we will see, or stop at along the way. We leave home heading west, via Cooyar, then along the Warrego Hwy through Roma, Morven, up to Blackall. Winton then across to Boulia and along the Plenty Hwy, then we take the longest shortcut up the Tanami Road. We then spend several days at the Bungles, which will be one of the highlights of the trip. From there it’s up to Kununurra, along the Gibb River Road. Then it’s up to Middle Lagoon and the Dampier Peninsula for a few days before heading down to Broome. We have timed our visit to Broome to tie in with the Staircase to the Moon. We have managed to squeeze in a trip to the Horizontal Waterfalls, leaving from Derby. Then it’s along the Northern Hwy to Halls Creek and then up Duncan Road joining onto the Victoria Hwy and through to Katherine. From there we stop in at Litchfield National Park before moving on to Darwin. Then it’s south back to Katherine, Mataranka, along the Roper Hwy down to Cape Crawford, along the Savannah Way to Doomadgee coming in the back way into Lawn Hill National Park. Down to Mt Isa, Boulia, Bedourie, Windorah, Charleville and back along the Warrego Hwy to home.
We will do our best to update our site, but we won’t have mobile reception in a lot of places or we will just be having too much fun 🙂
