Ford Territory to Bungle Bungles
by Terence O'Brian
Creek crossing on the way into the Bungle Bungles
I will be visiting the Kimberleys and Bungle Bungles in July / August - driving an All Wheel Drive Ford Territory, towing a standard 18' tandem caravan.
I note that you state that "a visit to the Bungles requires a 4WD" (Page 11) and "What you do need is the high clearance of a 4WD..." (Page 22).
Can you comment as to whether the clearance of a Ford Territory AWD would be sufficient to access the Bungle Bungles (without the caravan of course)? The Territory has more clearance than a Falcon - but less than the Toyota / Nissan 4WD's.
I am not planning to tackle the full length of the Gibb River Road - just the 2WD section from Derby to Windjana Gorge / Tunnel Creek / Highway 1.
However, could you also comment on taking an AWD Ford Territory along the full length of the Gibb River Road / Mitchell Falls in case other drivers of Ford Territory's are interested?
