good luck doing it in 2 weeks, i would drive to Newman in 1 big hit and do Karajini, Tom Price, Millstrean, Karratha then head back down the coast, Exmouth is a bit of a drive in and back out to get back on the hwy, you could do just Exmouth/coral bay for a week alone...
Have fun

just a "follow-up...... you can do Perth to Newman in 12 hours if you can share driving ..... and at the speed limit also, watch the big moo cows in the evening after Meeka

A bit limited for time unfortunatly so have to make the best of he time available

Only one driver so will probably take 2 days to get to Newman/Karijini so where would you recomend a stop along the way

Also can you recomend any nice camping areas in either Karijini or Millstream

Don, just out of Leonora is the old gold town of Gwalia. Well worth a look, has a museum at Hoover House.

Happy travels Dave

Lots of places to stop on the way to Newman/Karijini. Just pull of the side of the road any where and have a nice peaceful quiet night. There is only 2 camping spots at Karijini. One is at Dales Gorge and the other is the opposite side of the NP. All are very nice.
