River crossings on Savannah Way
by Thomas Hultberg
My wife and I have been in Australia 4 times. We have driven almost all around the continent. Including the Gibb River Road some years ago and last year The Eyre Highway over the Nullabor. In the North we crossed some rivers. The biggest was Pentecost River. It was in July and there was not so much water at that time.
But - we think we have the most interesting part left. We are therefore planning to drive in July (the dry season) from Darwin - Katherine - Boroloola - Burketown - Normanton - Cairns. Probably we even will visit Lawn Hill Nation Park.
We are planning to rent a suitable 4 wheel drive car for 3 weeks.
We have read all the information about driving the Savannah Road in your website.
As we are not so experienced 4 wheel drivers - to cross rivers – we would like to know if there are some difficult rivers to cross.
