My wife and I have been planning a trip around Australia for the last 2 years and this is the year! We will be leaving Lightning Ridge, NSW on the 1st July 2017 and heading west going along the Darling River towards Menindee and Mungo national park. From here we head towards the Flinders Ranges and spend a month going up through the centre of Australia visiting places like Akaroola, Finke, Uluru, Alice Springs and the West Mac ranges.
We will embark to Katherine before heading west towards Kunnanurra. We spent around 10 weeks in the Northern Territory in 2015 so we are planning to spend more time in WA this trip. We will have around 4 weeks exploring Lake Argyle before heading down to Purnululu and checking out Wolfe Creek crater. Once back on the Gibb River Road we’ll head North up to the Mitchell river and Kalumburu before heading back down towards Derby trying to see the most of the Kimberleys.
Once on the North WA coast, we will head to places like Cape Leveque and Broome before roving South taking in the usual sights like Karijini, Cape Range National Park, Francois Peron NP and Kalbari NP. From here we’ll head to Perth, but really just pass through so we can check out the wineries in the Margaret River region. We will basically travel the furthest roads south around to Esperence and Cape Le Grand before ducking up to Kalgoorlie before heading along the Nullabor.
Once we get back in SA we’ll be shooting through fairly quickly to the Great Ocean Rd in VIC. From there we travel across Bass Straight to Tasmania where we have a month there to explore. The below image is what our trip should look like
