Well into preparations for our yearly June/July adventure, this year "Darwin via the Gulf", including the "Great Top Road"
Have not done any of this in the past so I would love any advice/tips from members.
The route planned is as follows: (?) = number of nights
Start Rosewood QLD, Emerald QLD (1), Charters Towers QLD (1), Mt Surprise QLD (2), Karumba QLD (2), Adel's Grove QLD (3), Hells Gate QLD (1), Borroloola NT(1), Butterfly Springs (Limen NP) NT (2), Mataranka NT(2), Darwin NT(3), Kakadu NP NT(2), Katherine NT(2), Daly Waters NT(1), Tennant Creek NT(1), Barkly Homestead NT(1), Mt Isa QLD(2), Barcaldine QLD(1), Mitchell QLD (2), Home. In total approx. 8000kl over 30 days.

We are in a 2005 Hyundai Terracan CRDi, with the usual mods, UHF Radio, roof basket, bull bar, Duel batteries, Snorkel, heavy duty suspension, 2 inch lift, air bags and new geolander AT/s tyres.
Recovery gear: Shovel, max trax, snatch strap, extension strap, rated shackles, also carrying good tool kit and spare belts, hoses, filters etc.
Hope to have some sort of winch before our departure.

Towing a MDC "off Road Extreme", also with some mods, wheels and tyres identical to car, 85lt water tank, alloy tank guard, electric water pump, 2x 110AH deep cycle batteries, second spare wheel carrier on rear, 50lt fuel on trailer.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
