We're flying to Darwin in 2 1/2 weeks time and starting a six weeks trip to Perth... SOOO Looking forward to it! We're renting a 4WD campervan (Cheapa Camper), and got a good deal, I think. Itinerary planning has been taking up a LOT of our time, and I must admit it is quite good fun, but also VERY frustrating at times. Here's our plan (so far)... We would appreciate any inputs or comments you might have:
Day 1 - Flying to Darwin, pick up campervan.
Day 2 - Litchfield.
Day 3 - Litchfield - Drive to Kakadu.
Day 4 - Kakadu.
Day 5 - Kakadu.
Day 6 Kakadu - Drive to Katherine.
Day 7 - Katherine.
Day 8 - Katherine.
Day 9 - Drive to Lake Argyle.
Day 10 - Cruise Lake Argyle - Drive to Turkey Creek.
Day 11 - Drive to Bungles.
Day 12 - Bungles.
Day 13 - Bungles.
Day 14 - Drive to El Questro.
Day 15 - El Questro.
Day 16 - El Questro / Home Valley Station.
Day 17 - Home Valley.
Day 18 - Drive to King Edward River Camp.
Day 19 - Mitchell Plateau.
Day 20 - Drive to Manning Gorge.
Day 21 - Manning & Galvans Gorge / Drive to Mornington.
Day 22 - Mornington.
Day 23 - Mornington / Drive to Bell Gorge.
Day 24 - Bell Gorge / Drive to Windjana Gorge.
Day 25 - Windjana Gorge & Tunnel Creek / Drive to Broome.
Then four days in Broome, and plenty of days to push around if we need to (diving at Ningaloo for 5 days, as well).
A couple of specifics: Day 18, 21 and 25... Are we pushing it ?... Too much crammed into one day?
All your expert advice is appreciated;-).
Birgit: Thanks for a GREAT book and a great website... It has been a fantastic help!
