Departing tomorrow on Savannah Way

Well, our time in Darwin has come to an end (I think we have been here for six weeks while working and catching up with family and friends).

We have closely monitored conditions on the Savannah Way to make sure roads are all open, and all is now good. So we leave tomorrow morning, driving down to Mataranka then out on the Roper Highway to Roper Bar, Borroloola, Doomadgee etc. At this stage we are not too sure what way we will come south from QLD but think we might drop down from Normanton, then through the middle of Australia back home to SA.

If anyone else is on the same tracks, and see us, please say hello. We have a gold Landcruiser and a Kedron caravan.

I will duly submit a trip report at the end of the trip.

Thanks to everyone who gave feedback and advice on the road conditions.

It's a great trip, especially across from Borroloola to Hells Gate, traveled that way this time last year. In some ways more enjoyable than the GRR, due to its remoteness and the lack of traffic. Stay a while and linger at some of the free campsites near the river crossings if you can afford the time , you'll get back in contact with the rest of the world soon enough.
