Birgit - I found your book very helpful in devising my itinerary. I particularly noted your comments about not trying to compress everything into the time available so reluctantly have left out Mornington, Mitchell Plateau, Cape Leveque - however I think the trip will be amazing.

I will be travelling in early June 09 so hopefully all roads are open and in good order as I have pre-booked most of the accommodation.

19 days Darwin to Broome
by: Birgit

Hi Graeme,

Sorry that it took me so long to get back to you. (I've been away on an amazing trip myself.)

Thanks for the kind words and for sharing your itinerary. It looks good! I don't have any other comments on it. Early June you should be fine.

The only thing you may encounter is one of those stupid out of season rains that we experienced in the last two years. But since those were out of season oddities there is no way to avoid them or plan around them...

I hope it will be a perfectly normal season and am sure that it will be an amazing trip in any way.
