I’ve just spent a week in my car – driving across the top of Australia, from Cairns to Broome.
It’s an epic road trip, almost an odyssey. A bit late in the year for it, with the build-up to the wet season well underway. I ran into storms most afternoons, but it was a great trip. Highly recommended. I opted for the Flinders Highway to Mount Isa, rather than the rougher ride through the Gulf Country – I’ll save that for next time.
Day 1 Cairns to Charters Towers: Day 2 Charters Towers to Mount Isa: Day 3 Mt Isa to Renner Springs: Day 4 Renner Springs to Timber Creek: Day 5 Timber Creek to Lake Argyle: Day 6 Lake Argyle to Fitzroy Crossing: Day 7 home to Broome. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
