    Half Lap Planning

    Well it's been five years since our Cape York sojourn so it's time to plan the next big one.
    Once I put this down in writing there's no going back so here goes.

    Rough Itinerary:

    Ballarat to Marree
    Marree to Marla via the Oodnadatta Track
    Marla to Uluru and Kata Tjuta then on to Kings Canyon
    Alice Springs via the West McDonald Ranges
    Litchfield National Park, Darwin then Kakadu
    Mataranka to Lorella Springs
    Borroloola to Burketown via Lawn Hill
    Normanton, Kurumba, Cairns
    Leisurely trip down the east coast to get home.
    All up about 13,000 km and a good bit of dirt road in that.

    We'll be stopping at all interesting spots along the way and don't have a time limit (just need to convince my wife of this bit). Caravan is fully self contained so aiming to free camp as much as possible.
    Cheers

    Sounds good, possibly with the exception of the busy crowded & expensive east coast!

    There is method in my madness, hence the East Coast is on the homeward leg.
