2000 West Coast Australia Trip

We departed on Monday May 1 for this adventure to take in the Western half of Australia. Our trip took us from Ballarat to Echuca, along the Kidman Way taking in Griffith, Cobar and Bourke. Into Queensland along the Matilda Highway passing through Cunnamulla, Charleville, Longreach, Winton to Mt Isa. Across into the Northern Territory and up to Katherine. After some R&R in Katherine we headed for Kununurra which was our base for about two weeks. From this base we ventured into the eastern half of The Kimberley as well as into the Purnululu National Park (Bungle Bungles). We then head over to Derby which we used as a base for covering the western half of The Kimberly. On to Broome for a couple of weeks and up to Cape Leveque before starting to head south towards Perth. From Perth down to Albany, Esperance, back up to Kalgoorlie then across the Nullabor to Port Lincoln. From Port Lincoln across to Broken Hill, Mildura and then home. 5 1/2 months on the road and 25,000km. A great adventure.
