Hi there all,

I have had a bit of a search of the forums and a google but was hoping some with real experience would offer some tips. my husband and our three kids 5,2 and nearly 1 have a 2wd Kluger and will soon have a cool new (to us) camper trailer.

we have done the trip across a few times a few years ago pre kids and in our patrol and swaging it so were not on the look out for what we are now wanting which is accessible but peaceful camping. we intend to mix it up with stopping for a few nights in places and some overnight stops on the way through. we're thinking 3 to four weeks in June.

any tips on links, books or your own experience would be gratefully received.

Hi Chipsy

We too like peaceful and remote camp sites. You can't do better than purchase the Jan Holland Priceless Campsites and Rest Areas publications (from the ExplorOz shop or other distributors). These are only for NT and WA, so cover the area you are asking about. She gives much more detail than the Camps Australia Wide (now on version 5) which most people use, so you would know if unsuitable for your 2wd. She also gives great advise on what to do and see within the listings.

As you head up the Stuart Highway, the old WWII air strips are lovely flat bitumised places to camp, often several kilometres away from the highway. They may have several entrance tracks, and although some may be rough, you should find one easy entrance.

Will you be touring places such as Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks? These have camp sites which are easy to get into as well as those requiring 4wd.
