The Savannah Way – Cairns to Broome

Our recent caravan adventures took us across the Savannah Way in Northern Australia, from the tropical east coast and Atherton Tablelands, through the vast, remote and sparsely populated interior outback of Queensland and Northern Territory, and on through the stunning Kimberley region of Western Australia and ending up at the beachside town of Broome.  What an amazing country we live in, with so much diversity.  The road conditions along the Savannah Way are sometimes a little unpredictable and it is essential to check ahead with the Visitor Information Centres and other travelers as to any hazards or changing conditions that may effect your plans. There are generally a number of different options to get to where you’re going and sometimes the alternative tracks can be an adventure and discovery in themselves!

I have published a number of blog posts for the different places we have visited and below is summary and links to each.  The majority of our trip was spent in The Kimberley and there are still quite a few places that we have kept on our list for our next trip over that way.  I hope you enjoy a little insight into the beauty of Northern Australia.
