Top End Tour or Hiring 4WD?
I am hoping to travel to Australia end of June, through July & possibly into August 2009, as part of a RTW trip with my 3 children (12,16 &17), funds permitting. As at that time it'll be your winter, I thought it best to arrive into Darwin.
I'm thinking of spending a couple of days in Darwin, then taking a 'Top End' tour for a few days. I would also love to visit The Kimberley, so not sure whether to incorporate the both into one tour, or fly to Kununurra, hire a 4WD & attempt the Gibb River Road independently, which is what I'd prefer to do, but worried if I'll be able to cope with it.
Researching your site, I note that you advised another lady that driving the Gibb River Road was not too scary & to definitely consider it. (Although I'm still a little nervous as I've never attempted anything like this before.)
If you have the time, I'd be grateful for any advice/comments on my proposed trip.
I'm very impressed & encouraged by your site .. it's been most helpful. Many thanks for that.
