Driving from Broome to Darwin in wet season

by Dean

Me and 2 friends wanted to drive from Broome to Darwin. We only have 2 weeks and we could only leave Broome on the 28th of December as this is the only time we had off.

We will be in a 2wd. Do you think it might get tricky considering the wet season? We also just wanted to take a swag and some camping gear. Does it rain a lot?
Thankyou for your informative webpage and help.

Hi Dean,
Your question is addressed in the free Kimberley Guide and also on the website here:
Kimberley Weather: December

The most important sentence in that section:
"Unfortunately the rain is not spread out evenly. It may fall in a matter of a few days, causing extended flooding, and it's impossible to predict if and when that may happen..."

Also see the newsletter back issue from December last year.

It may rain a lot, it may not.
What I can predict is that it will be stinking hot.

If it makes sense to do the trip at all depends on what you're looking for. (See the free guide for details.)

A general reminder to all:
Unfortunately, these days I rarely have the time to answer questions that are already covered in several places.

If you have a question about travel in the Kimberley, download and read the free guide first. It should answer most if not all of your questions.

If that does not help, also do a search on the site.

You'll get your answer much quicker that way!
