Matilda Highway

Will be leaving Canberra on May 14 to do the Matilda Highway and the Savanah Way and have to be in Cairns on May 23.
The wife and myself will be free camping in Oztent when possible and stay in caravan parks only when we smell bad or need to wash some clothing.
As we will be on our own and never having been this way before any pointers or must see places or any other advice will be much appreciated.

Jake and Lucy
Will be in 80 series with 33" Wranglers with Rear locker

It is a little way off yet but I would keep an eye on this link - Roads may not necessarily be open

Longreach would be a MUST do destination - heaps to see and do there.Winton is great also - some beautiful views from the jump-ups there. Before getting onto the Savannah Way I would make a detour to the Gregory River and Lawn Hill Gorge - both amazing places, there are some great free camping areas on the banks of the Gregory River. I haven't done the Savannah Way but have heard Karumba is also a must-visit place.

They are some of the places we were thinking of going . Haven't got anything definite in mind as we will be making our minds up as we get there type of thing. Thanks for the info.
