Actually I hadn’t planned to report here about our trip to Australia in 2016. From Brisbane via Fraser Island to Alice Springs, Ayers Rock (Uluru) and Kings Canyon. And from there to Darwin in the north. With all routes and detours in total 7.500 km.
But because I’m already there and it somehow fits thematically in here, I will also briefly introduce you to this tour. By the way, we haven’t done it with the Landcruiser yet. Back then my son still had an old Mitsubishi Pajero. It had already run 300,000 km when he bought it. And I would certainly not have driven that to Germany later 😉
By the way, you can do this tour mostly with a normal car or with a camping bus. Except maybe the Sandover Highway. Because the rest of the route over the Bruce, Capricorn, Landsborough, Barkly and the Stuart Hwy. is a sealed road. And at every exit of the village there are indicators if the rivers to be crossed on the further section are closed due to high water. So – with the exception of Sandover Hwy – it is not a real off-road trip like in 2017, but one through the vastness and nature of Australia.
