Tuesday 6th December 2016


Bags packed, ready to go at sparrowfarts tomorrow, if the new Uber app works and the taxi arrives on time!  The local bus won’t get us to Helensvale Station in time for our train for our plane to Darwin, so taxi it is.  Here’s the planned itinerary, put together over the last few days, after deciding that although it’s not really the best time of year for the trip, it’s now or never, as we won’t have time in the autumn/winter:


Wed 7th – fly to Darwin, pick up hire car.

Thu 8th – explore Darwin & surrounds

Fri 9th – drive to Kakadu National Park

Sat 10th – explore Kakadu NP

Sun 11th – explore Kakadu NP

Mon 12th – drive to Katherine via Edith Falls

Tue 13th – Katherine Gorge, then drive to Daly Waters

Wed 14th – drive to Tennant Creek

Thu 15th – drive to Alice Springs via Devil’s Marbles

Fri 16th – Sun 18th – camping trip to Uluru, Kata Tjuta & Kings Canyon

Mon 19th – explore Alice Springs

Tues 20th – fly back to Brisbane
