You take the low road and we’ll take the high road… and we’ll meet you in Derby!

Having already travelled the long, dry and very hot road through the Aboriginal community of Warmun (Turkey Creek), the famous Bungle Bungles, Halls Creek and Fitzroy Crossing along the Great Northern Highway on a previous trip, I felt this journey through the Kimberley’s to the Indian Ocean was well worth a blog all of it’s own!

The Top End… Bitter Springs, Katherine, Edith Falls, Pine Creek, Kakadu & Darwin!

As we come out of the wilderness of endless miles of red dust, spinifex grass and grazing Brahman cattle allow us to take you on a little journey of some of the Top Ends more exquisite attractions, waterholes, waterfalls, floodplains… and a beautiful city perched on the tropical edge of Australia’s north coast! We are so in awe of this gorgeous country and it is a privilege to part of it!

GULF COUNTRY…

The Savannah Way can be completed by choosing a number of different routes but the track we have chosen to tackle over the next week or so will take us along the toughest route of all… 1350 kilometres of rugged outback tracks of bulldust, corrugations, water crossings and Aboriginal communities in the most isolated part of northern Queensland and the Northern Territory.

Crossing the Savannah Way from east to west… our journey begins!

Over the next few months we will traverse three Australian states and territories, lots of national parks and true-blue Australian outback on our incredible drive from one side of the continent to the other.

This next step of this journey would take us across 1350 kilometres of gravel road through the Gulf Savannah, over rugged outback tracks and water crossings, through Aboriginal communities and into the Northern Territory as we pass though Burketown, Tirranna Roadhouse, Doomadgee, Hells Gate Road House, Borroloola, Limmen National Park, Lorella Springs, Roper Bar and then back onto the Stuart Highway at Mataranka.

Shake, Rock ‘n’ Roll, out along the track…

Our journey to the Cape was coming to an end…we had been on a fantastic adventure! We loved the vast open spaces, the waterfalls and huge skies, the excitement of driving long stretches of dusty roads, rugged tracks, muddy water crossings and over rocky outcrops. There was something magical about sitting, listening to the world around us, reminiscing about the day just gone and planning for the day ahead… we had so much fun!

Queensland – Rocky to Daintree Village … Don’t look back, we’re not going that way!

We had visited Ayr on a previous trip and stayed at the local caravan park. We were there for 2 nights, and both nights ‘Burdekin snow’ fell and each morning our car and tent were covered in ash… ash that came from the practice of burning the sugar cane prior to harvesting.

Strap yourself in for our road trip north… we are heading to sunshine, warmth and clear blue skies!

Where do we go without getting grumpy or frostbite? We are heading to sunshine and warmth, to crystal skies, pristine beaches and clear blue water!
