Road Map of Projected Trip
Julie and Gary Lawrence are in the planning stage of our long anticipated trip across the northern and western parts of Australia. We hope to leave at the start of July and spend five months to return in December. The Map shows the distance to be about 12000 km. but with side excursions we expect it will be closer to 20,000 km by the time we get home. We will be towing our 4.3 m (14ft) Avan caravan with our Ford Falcon and mainly sticking to the main bitumen roads. For those not used to the Australian outback, these “highways” are very narrow when you leave the east coast and are often pretty rugged. They are also populated by hugh trucks travelling at high speed.
