We took a month to do this amazing trip. There was a party of eight people in four vehicles (Toyota Safari Landcruisers 4WD rented from Britz).

Itinerary: Cairns to Darwin, Darwin to Kakadu, Kadaku to Katherine, Katherine to Bungle Bungles, Bungle Bungles to Gibb River Road to Broome.

Cairns

Fly Qantas from Sydney to Cairns and collect a Britz 4WD with rooftop tent – a very well equipped vehicle. We drive to Port Douglas via Palm Cove.

Longreach, Queensland

Stockman Hall of Fame LongreachThere is much to see and do in Longreach. It’s a long drive to get there but if you have the time it’s worth spending a few days – the region has a lot to offer.

Longreach is located in Central Western Queensland. It is sheep and cattle country – and tourism increasingly plays an important role in the town’s prosperity. The most well known attractions are the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame and the Qantas Founders Museum, however we found there is much more to Longreach than that if you are visiting during the tourist season.

The tourist season is from April through to October so it’s best to plan your visit during that time, when most of the evening entertainment and tours are on.

Carnarvon Gorge, Queensland

Carnarvon Gorge Walk

Carnarvon Gorge Walk

Carnarvon Gorge is a spectacular place to visit in Queensland.

The Gorge is located in Central Queensland’s Highland Country, in what is called the Sandstone Belt. It is quite remote, about midway between Emerald and Roma (about a 3.5 hour drive from each town).

For us it was an ideal stopover on a road trip from Goondiwindi to Longreach – a place to spend a day to walk and experience the beauty of the gorge – steep sandstone cliffs, lush vegetation and Aboriginal rock art.
