Hi all,

Time to holiday after 42 years of work.

We are (wife & I) intending a trip through the Kimberleys next year.
We are commencing from SA then up to Litchfield NP, Darwin, Kakadu, Kununurra, GRR, Mitchell Falls, Tunnel Creek, Geike Gorge, Broome, etc.

Not sure where to go after the Kimberleys.
Are there any places that are a must do while we are there?

Leaving home start of April, (should be on GRR for early May) and returning via Perth end of June.
We will be towing the offroad CT for a bit of comfort.

Maybe we'll see you there,

Geoff.

I hope you are including the Bungles in there somewhere.

We are leaving our CT at Kununnurra and camping in swags at the Bungle Bungles before heading off to GRR.

The Pilbarra Region - Millstream National Park - The Murchison River - Monkey Mia - Kalgoorlie - the list is endless. You'll love WA. From Broome, a trip to Cape Levique (spelling???) is great. We also took a flight over the Horizontal Falls from Broome - a wonderful day. The Bungle Bungles are a must do thing - we went there on a helicopter flight then walked in with a guide.

Have fun, wish we could go back. . . . .

We will certainly take the suggestions on board Lynn and make the most of WA, thanks for your assistance.

You can spend a lot of time in the Kimberly - don't sell it short - allow plenty of time. Depending in your competence with the CT & 4x4 generally, there is a great drive out through Mt Elizabeth to Walcott Inlet. It's very remote but a fantastic drive - contact the homesteads before you go there. There's a great track back through Beverly Springs. It's all real 4x4 country but worth the effort.
It's God's country up at Cape Leveque and Middle lagoon but you must book a site at the Kooljaman camp site (at the tip) otherwise you will be turned away. You wont be sorry if you go up there. Next time we go back I will allow at least a week just to hang out there.
best of luck.

Thanks for your input Cocka, I would love to try the Walcott Inlet.
Have done quite a bit of offroad work both with car and CT.

Cape Leveque has been mentioned a couple of times, so must give that one a go.

Can't wait,
Geoff.

Hey Nick, we may see you there.

I have included Wyndham in my itinerary, just didn't want to bore people with a long description.

We will probably be in Kununnurra mid to late April. Driving a blue GU patrol.

Hope to see you there,

Geoff.
