My wife and I are off to the Kimberley in Aug - Sept this year. Our jump off point is the Alice where we are going to link up with some other people.

However we need to get from Newcastle to the Alice in around 5-6 days. We are looking for any ideas as to a good interesting route to the Alice from Newcastle.

So if you have any ideas (and they are all welcome) please let me know.

Cheers and Thanks

Having just done that trip and I am from Newcastle you can reach Alice Springs
in 6 days of easy driving.If you stick to the tar by going throughBroken Hill,Port Augusta,then up the Stuart Hwy.More interesting way is head up through Hawker
then on to Maree up the Oodnadatta track to Marla back on the Stuart Hwy then up to Alice.Thats the way we went and still saw everthing with easy driving with a trailer and 3 kids.

Have a good trip

Alternatively:
Bourke - Cunnamulla - Windorah - Boulia - Urandangi - Lake Nash -and down the Plenty Highway. Lotta good condition gravel/ dirt. Great countryside. Urandangi is a nice little place for a beer.
