Let’s check the Stats.

The road trip that we have just completed allowed us to see just a snapshot of Western Australia but we packed in as much as time, money, road conditions and weather would allow us to. Our plan from the beginning had been to see Western Australia, a state we hadn’t been to before and basically hug the coastline from bottom to top, before heading into the Northern Territory and scooting back home down the middle.

We had around three months of touring time up our sleeves from start to finish, not a lot of time when you consider that WA makes up one third of the landmass of Australia. So here are just some of the interesting statistics from our touring.

The end of the road…for now

Our first night back in South Australia was an overnight stop at Marla Travellers Rest, a good old reliable spot to camp with fuel, food, power and amenities all together. It’s far enough off the highway not to hear too much road noise and spaces fill up the later it gets in the day.

Heading down the track.

The homeward stretch began as we left Darwin behind with its coldest day on record, struggling to get above 21 degrees all day. Too cold here, time to head south (Ha Ha, that’s one for our Darwin friends).

We stayed one night in Katherine then moved on to stay the next at Bitter Springs, Mataranka.  There were noticeably more caravans and campers on the road as it got closer to the Easter weekend. Still we could pull up wherever we liked and the sites were big enough to stay hitched on to the car for a quick take-off the next day.  Continue reading


Destination Darwin

We left Western Australia with some sadness, thinking about all the good times and great experiences we had in that state.  That now makes it every mainland state and territory in Australia that I’ve been to. Pretty happy with that!  We headed into the Northern Territory, a place we’ve been to quite a few times over the years but haven’t visited for over a decade.

Lake Argyle – Jewel of the Kimberley

I could be talking about the rare and exquisite pink diamonds which are mined in this Lake Argyle area but I found another jewel a bit more accessible and affordable for everyone!

We only moved 70 kilometres from our last stay but this destination was on our must do list and it was one that had a reputation for being a place to stay for a while.

Rocks and Crocs

The next main destination for us was Kununurra but we made a few one night stops on the way.  Some of the days involved long drives but we still would set up quickly then head off to see what the towns had to offer for travellers.
