The Savannah Way can be completed by choosing a number of different routes but the track we have chosen to tackle over the next week or so will take us along the toughest route of all… 1350 kilometres of rugged outback tracks of bulldust, corrugations, water crossings and Aboriginal communities in the most isolated part of northern Queensland and the Northern Territory.
Over the next few months we will traverse three Australian states and territories, lots of national parks and true-blue Australian outback on our incredible drive from one side of the continent to the other.
This next step of this journey would take us across 1350 kilometres of gravel road through the Gulf Savannah, over rugged outback tracks and water crossings, through Aboriginal communities and into the Northern Territory as we pass though Burketown, Tirranna Roadhouse, Doomadgee, Hells Gate Road House, Borroloola, Limmen National Park, Lorella Springs, Roper Bar and then back onto the Stuart Highway at Mataranka.

Our journey to the Cape was coming to an end…we had been on a fantastic adventure! We loved the vast open spaces, the waterfalls and huge skies, the excitement of driving long stretches of dusty roads, rugged tracks, muddy water crossings and over rocky outcrops. There was something magical about sitting, listening to the world around us, reminiscing about the day just gone and planning for the day ahead… we had so much fun!
This untouched piece of Australia is apparently very beautiful; magical, vast and rugged… but potentially very dangerous, and we knew it wasn’t a matter of simply pointing Harry Hilux north to the ‘Tip’… we would have to work at it!
Join us on our journey along the Old Telegraph Track, to Australia’s northern most Tip, Thursday Island and much, much more…
After 8 weeks on the road living out of our hilux and sleeping in the rooftop tent, it didn’t take us long to work out the most beautiful things in life are not ‘things’… they are people and places, memories and photos!
We had visited Ayr on a previous trip and stayed at the local caravan park. We were there for 2 nights, and both nights ‘Burdekin snow’ fell and each morning our car and tent were covered in ash… ash that came from the practice of burning the sugar cane prior to harvesting.
