If you are looking to experience the wildest trip to the stunning country of Australia this holiday season 2013, a campervan drive from Darwin to Broome is the ultimate choice. Stretching across the northwest edge of this wonderful country, this road trip takes you to one of the most lasting and untouched wilderness on the earth.
This travel itinerary makes you explore the landmass where the areas are bigger than Ireland with no existence of human inhabitation; it is a place where farmers sacrifice a number of cattle throughout the year to wild crocodiles and many communities are completely isolated from the major cities of the country during heavy rainfall season.
The northerly peak of the country, which is called the top end by the locals, is word-famous for its diverse characters – real ‘Ozzie battlers’ who arrive in the northernmost part to earn money and then never returned back to south. And to your great surprise, these are the people to whom a barricade badly torn by a wild buffalo and a head-height flood are as normal as a traffic jam scenes to us.
This campervan drive that begins from the north coast, from Darwin, and stops in the west, in Broome, is a historical ride that will make you step back in the enchanting past of the country. Following are some major highlight of this once-in-a-life-time kind of road trip.
