Perth to Katherine
by Maria Cunningham
My husband has just been appointed a teaching job in Katherine NT and so we are making the journey from Perth to Katherine very soon. We have a 3 and a 5 yr old on board! We are driving a '99 Ford Falcon station wagon.
It has been suggested to us that we head towards South Australia and then head north via Coober Pedy. Do you think this is the most sensible move? We will only have about ten days to make the journey max. Perhaps a couple of nights pit stop in Alice.
Could you please suggest realistic size chunks of the journey so we can start making some en route bookings. Thank you very much for your time. Maria
