Darwin to Perth Escorted Motorhome Tour August 2019 Highlights

November 21, 2019

In August this year, one of our escorted motorhome tours travelled 7,000 km along the diverse and beautiful route from Darwin to Perth and we have the highlights here to show you!

Starting up at the tropical and lush top end, they travelled through small yet significant inland townships on the way, explored the spectacular Kimberley region and onto the picture postcard turquoise coastline of WA.

Grab yourself a comfy spot, sit back and enjoy the highlights of our 35-day escorted tour from Darwin to Perth and see for yourself the stunning scenery on offer!

Having met their fellow comrades at the Darwin depot, they set off on their expedition and travelled through some of the most beautiful sights and scenery in Australia.  These were just some of the spots they visited:

  • Just down the road from Darwin they stopped at Litchfield National Park to discover ginormous magnetic termite mounds, beautiful waterfalls among monsoon rain forests,  and other historical sights
  • Enjoyed a sunset at a historical cattle station
  • Cruising along the Arnhem Highway our Gallivanters were privy to incredible wildlife and scenery at Window on the Wetlands and Fogg Dam

  • Our Gallivanters went on some stunning dawn boat cruises on Yellow Water Billabong and also at Katherine Gorge which are truly spectacular! We can only say you have to be there to really experience the atmosphere and listening to the sounds of nature as it wakes up with the dawn, it’s a sight and sound to remember that’s for sure!
