Hi all, this is my first post so please bear with me :)
We are planning a road trip Gold Coast to Darwin and back, (via the Winton and Mt Isa route) in the 2nd half of September. We'll be two adults and a very well-travelled 7 year old, in a 4WD.
We're campers, a photographer, (so photo opportunity suggestions are very welcome!) and all quite ok with long stretches of driving.
We will be stopping at Winton (to see the dinosaur place) and we're pretty sure about the NT side of the trip but we'd love some suggestions about where to stop to break up the drive otherwise between GC and Winton, and Winton and Tennant Creek.
We're taking our camping gear so any good campsite suggestions would be great!
Is roughly 2 weeks or so doable? And, given it's the end of the dry season in September, should the weather still be ok?
Any suggestions from folks who've done this drive would be greatly appreciated!
