This is a true overland trip, and the journey is a big part of the experience. On some days of the trip, you will spend several hours driving, often through very sparse areas of desert. Crank up the tunes and sit back to enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel.
This trip requires a decent level of agility and stamina, as it involves a lot of walking, allowing you to really get among nature. The hikes in the Kimberley are particularly challenging. Please bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing.
Temperatures in regional Australia can be extreme. During the day the weather can be hot (and the Australian sun is strong) so please bring appropriate clothing, use sun protection and drink plenty of water. In the evenings temperatures really drop, so ensure you have base layers and warm clothing.

This is a wonderful opportunity to incorporate exercise with beautiful environments. The scenery is stunning. Come prepared with good hiking shoes; swim in every waterhole; embrace the spirit of this country every chance you get. A good head torch is useful. Pack light but make sure you have layers to add in the evening, a beanie and warm sleeping bag.

A great trip to see the north west of Australia. Be prepared for long days and wonderful scenery and experiences. A decent headlamp,makes a difference when camping.
