We are a group of 7 people (with 1 more flying into Broome to join us and she will fly out of Kununurra. We have 4 4WD vehicles and 3 offroad campertrailers and 1 tent.)
The only real issues with dates are van park bookings in Broome, Middle Lagoon, Cape Leveque and Derby which have been booked otherwise our itinerary is fairly loose.
This is one option.
The other option has us coming into the Kimberleys via Victoria Highway then down the Duncan Road to Halls Creek, then the itinerary would be the same from Halls Creek which would make it about 37 days.
Any thoughts, comments ideas would be appreciated.
