Travelling the Gibb River Road in May 2009
by Linda Capon
We are thinking of booking self drive 4WD itinerary from Darwin to Broome via the Gibb River Road with stops arranged. We are concerned that the river crossings may be difficult or impossible to traverse.
What are the conditions likely to be at this time of the year? The date to leave Darwin would be 6 May and we would be at Kununurra on 10 May. If this is not a good idea can you make some suggestions?
Also what are the insects like at that time of year?
