Planning a Darwin to Broome camping trip

by Elizabeth Romeo
(Victoria, Australia)

My partner and I have just decided to self-drive and camp from Darwin to Broome through the Kimberleys but that's about as far as we have made it in our planning.

What a wonderful website!!! Don't know much about the area so I will purchase Destination Kimberley ASAP. Will that be enough of a resource to plan our trip??

We wanted to avoid a paid trip with an itinerary. We have both done some camping, but would like to take 3-4 weeks to do the trip. We'd also like to know what month is best to travel? Thank you so much for your time.

The best place to start is the Kimberley Pocket Guide

Hi Elizabeth,

You didn't leave an email so you won't get notified about this answer. I do hope you will actually come back and find it!

The best place to start is my free guide. It will answer many of your questions already, e.g. what is the best month to travel?

3-4 weeks is the perfect time frame for this trip, and yes, Destination Kimberley is all you will need for planning and guidance. It's perfect if you want to do a camping trip.

Should you really have any questions left after reading through the book then you just ask them here and I'll do my best to help you with it!

Elizabeth - my sentiments (and trip planning) match yours exactly!

This is an amazing resource and I can't thank Birgit enough for the work she puts into this site and the resources on offer here.

I'll be watching for updates and tips from other travellers here as well :-).

Many thanks,
