24 Days Darwin to Broome
by: Birgit

Hi Judy,

Your itinerary does not contain any detail regarding what exactly you plan to see and do, so I can't tell you whether you allowed enough time for that or not. I can however tell you that your driving distances are all very reasonable. As long as you have no plans to spend more than a few hours at most of those places actually hiking and swimming and exploring, and as long as you are happy to set up and break camp almost every single day, there are no obvious problems.

You did allow an extra night each at the Bungles and Mornington, you have a long relaxing stay at the end on the Dampier Peninsula.

You did something similar last year, so you know what to expect and I am sure you have planned everything accordingly.

I think it should all work out very well.

Hope it will be a great trip!
