Hi All,

I know this has probably been covered 1000 times but I can't find what I am looking for so your assistance would be great. :)

I am wanting to plan a trip around Australia and basically I am wanting assistance of which way you think me and the lady should go.

1.
I live in Sydney and want to leave from here and return (Sometime)

2.
I will have a well setup 4WD, with roof top tent etc.

3.
We plan to leave here mid Dec

4.
We plan on heading away for approx 7-9 months (Maybe longer)

5.
Plan to budget $30k ish for food and fuel, camping fee's, the odd helicopter trip etc.....

6.Your help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Marc

If you are leaving in December then head south. It will be too hot and wet.

Hi MF,
We left Sydney in January and headed south.Not only did we escape the bad weather on the east coast we kept fairly warm all the way to broome where we are now. We are now sitting in shorts and tee shirts and lookiing to head across the top and up to the cape before the wet season.It also saves on packing as we had to take fewer warm clothes. It got a little chilly around southern WA but a couple of days later we found the warm weather again. Whatever way you go you are going to have a ball and meet some great folks, so just do it
Humie and family

Hi Humie,
We are doing the same thing in Jan 2010 but heading from Syd to Port Augusta and across to W/A up the west coast to Darwin then through the centre and back to Syd is that what you did or did you go the east coast route and Tasi,I ask this because our plans are not solid and any advice for my wife and 2 young Blokes 6 & 10 would be appreciated .

Cheers.

Just a thought, we were glad we did the Great Ocean Road from east to west. I would assume the Great Aust Bight would be the same. You can pull off easier to view the scenic look outs.

Dont forget......a TRUE 'round Australia trip also features a lap around Tassie.

You cant say you've truly been south till you've been to Cockle Creek :)
