The map shows where we will be travelling during this time.
We will start with a quick 4 day drive up to Tilmouth Well (just out of Alice Springs) for our first night camping on the Tanami Track. We then follow this across to Halls Creek and into the Bungle Bungle National Park for a few days.
We then spend a few days around Kununurra and exploring the property of El Questro. Following this we spend a week or so travelling the Gibb River Road and the magical gorges in this area. Then we hit Broome for just under a week’s stay, but this is where we undertake one of the highlights of our trip – a visit to the Horizontal Falls, both very excited about this one! And of course, camel riding along Cable Beach at sunset (George not so excited about this one!).
After another week or two exploring, we reach Karijini National Park which looks out of this world in all the photos we’ve seen, so we can’t wait to start exploring that for a few days. Then it’s back out onto the coast to snorkel and explore the Ningaloo Reef and see the famous dolphins at Monkey Mia.
Finally we start our journey home as we head towards the Great Central Road, which will take us from Laverton to Uluru. We didn’t think we’d be heading back to Uluru so soon after our last visit, but there is an amazing art installation there at the moment by internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro. This is called ‘Field of Light’ and is made up of more than 50,000 solar-powered lights which light up the darkness. Uluru is such a spiritual place and this looks amazing, it will just add to the beauty of this magical area. So of course, we had to waste some more money and book in 2 nights accommodation, a ‘Field of Light’ tour and dinner beneath the stars!
From Uluru it’s a few days drive back home via one of our favourite places, Coober Pedy. Will definitely be heading back to John’s Pizza Bar for some of their great food again!
So there it is, hope you’ll join us on our journey across Western Australia as i’m sure there will be plenty of photos and blog posts along the way!
