    I don't have the book but did purchase the paper map when there was talk of the 2017 GTG.

    Thanks for the offer and will keep it in mind.

    The rough plan at this stage was for me to drive straight up the middle to Darwin, to allow the kids to have as much time in school as possible, then have the family fly into Darwin and then take two days to drive to the start of the GTG.

    It is only $200 dearer to fly the family than to put them on the boat with me.

    Be aware that this is peak tourist season up here and accommodation could be scarce unless you book early. If you are doing Broome then a trip up the Dampier Peninsular is worth the drive.
    Whitey1 pm me when you are coming to Broome for info on Caravan Parks in Broome.

    Cheers

    Prior to living in Broome we visited twice mid year and had no trouble finding a spot at a van park. In 2014, when we lived in Broome, there were so many vacancies around Broome all the parks were whinging. Many travelers have opted to skip Broome altogether and bypass.

    Hey Rod, we'll actually be there in a couple of weeks getting ready for the Gibb Challenge. Already booked into a caravan park for a few days.
    For the GTG next year we're looking into other options that'll be more suitable for a big group camping together. Might have to catch up though.
    Can't we just keep travelling?

    We may just have others coming with us so the Tasmanian contingent may just be bigger than one vehicle this time.
