Ahhhh I remember Kununurra circa 1982.

The lowest temp during the whole of March was 38 during the day and it would drop down to 30 at night

It is going to be a big learning curve.

But I am sure you will have fun and enjoy the community up there in the Never Never

Let us know how you go.

I love the seasons. Just when you can't stand the heat any longer.... you don't need to!

Good luck in one of the hottest places I have ever experienced.

Gday Nick

Looks like you are comeing up to one of our best wets for a while. Been mild weather and plenty of good rain for a few weeks now. Good luck with the rivers on the way up, (the vic has been over apparently, and Katherine came close) This site I have found excellent for wet season driving in WA:

I haven't found the equivelant for the NT yet, but haven't really looked either. For anyone out there, the above site helps heaps (with the Dunham at least). Last week, I was at work & supposed to go home in the afternoon. Looked up the site in the early morning & saw that the water level was at 13.95 metres, and the road starts flooding at 13.7. The site also gives the rate of rise, which was at 300mm per hour.

A quick bit of brown nosing to the boss, and I was off, as the crossing is about an hour away. Got there with several vehicles waiting at the crossing. I walked it, bout 700mm deep and not flowing too hard, so collected 4 'stranded' people & drove through.

Anyone know of similar sites we can all use.

Cheers Andrew
