Myself and 3 friends are planning a trip from Perth to Darwin from the 2nd April ? 27th April 2009. We were going to hire a camper van but are now not sure if this is our best option, we have been told that some areas up in the Kimberly regions are 4WD only. Is this the case? In particular the Bungle Bungles.
We have also been told that April is the rainy season and that some roads may be closed, please can you advise if there are alternate routes and what areas are closed and how long they are closed for.
We are basically trying to find the most affordable travel options without missing anything out, we have tried looking at tours but they are not within our budget range and we also wanted the experience of doing it ourselves.
Any information you can provide us with would be most helpful,
