(Port Macquarie, NSW)
We are leaving home (Port Macquarie NSW) on 2nd July 2009 to travel to Darwin, Kakadu and then the highlight of our trip, into the Kimberleys. Below is our itinerary, which we would love you to comment on.
I put it together after buying a copy of your book Destination Kimberley, which I am totally hooked on along with your website.
