The proposal is to basically follow the blue line on the map. We have probably decided to avoid the Gibb River Road at this stage. We may alter that decision as the planning goes on. This is the first draft of the route.
The route is about 12,000km’s and I’d expect it to take somewhere between twelve and twenty weeks depending on where we actually end up going and what we want to see and do. Campground Hosting in NT and SA are high on the agenda so that’ll add a few weeks as well.
Travelling about a thousand kilometres a week seems reasonable, at this stage anyway.
Once the route comes together a bit more we’ll be able to get a better handle on approximate fuel costs. Currently it looks like about $3,500 given that we’ll get around 13 or 15 Litres / 1ooKm’s and working on an average fuel cost of $1.50 or $1.70 / Litre.
