In various parts of northern Australia, roads may be closed in the ‘green season’, which is usually during summer. This may affect some of the things you will be able to see and should be taken into account if you are travelling at this time. On the other hand if you are considering Campervan or Motorhome hire at this time, you’ll find it a lot quieter which may appeal to you, including the opportunity to see some amazing wildlife.
Some roads in Australia can have very soft edges, particularly in the wet. If possible, when pulling onto the side of the road, stop on the sealed road before manoeuvring cautiously onto the shoulder.
