DRIVING ACROSS THE TOP OF AUSTRALIA – CAIRNS TO BROOME IN SEVEN DAYS

WP77

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.

  1. What a country! And, that’s just a tiny portion of it. Your photos were, as always, fun to see.

    You and C1 have covered a few km’s, eh?

    Have a good Christmas, send some rain to the Tablelands, please.
