8 days Broome to Darwin. Are we mad?
by Dave and Lis
Love your site! Thank you for the terrific information. My husband and I have quite limited time, so we will be travelling via the Great Northern Highway. Does the following sound at all reasonable?
Day 1: Broome to Fitzroy Crossing/Geikie Gorge. Camp overnight.
Day 2: Fitzroy Crossing to Bungle Bungles. Camp overnight.
(After reading about the time it takes to actually drive into the national park itself, I am worried about the logistics of this day, and we are now considering the alternative of doing a huge drive the first day, i.e. skipping Geikie Gorge entirely, and driving straight to Halls Creek, to enable a longer day at the Bungle Bungles)
Day 3: Bungle Bungles to Timber Creek. Camp overnight.
Day 4: Timber Creek to Kakadu.
Day 5: Kakadu
Day 6: Kakadu to Humpty Doo, staying at Fogg Dam.
Day 7: Fogg Dam
Day 8: Darwin.
Any advice would be gratefully received! Thank you, Dave and Lis
