Gibb River Road with minimal baggage?
Great site Birgit!
Our family is planning to travel from Darwin to Broome, taking in Kakadu, the Gibb River Road and the Bungle Bungles. We are travelling in July/August with our three children, ages 7,11,13. We are hiring a 4WD, with no trailer and no roof rack!
We will be taking basic camping equipment with us from Holland, consisting of two lightweight tents, sleeping bag, sleeping mats, and some basic camp stuff. Darwin will profit from our coming as we plan to buy the rest of the gear in Australia.
Is it wise to consider extra baggage room like a roof rack, considering the fact we need to take extra food and water?
Have you or other readers of this site, seen families doing the GRR with minimal baggage?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
