Once you have this as a base, all you need to do is add a little extra time for exploring!

Motorhome Plus (Darwin to Perth): Journey Planner Spreadsheet
If you have ever embarked on a big motorhome road trip, you will already know the value of a well-thought out, well-designed and easy-to-use planning tool. Call us ‘old school’ but despite there being apps aplenty out there claiming to be the cat’s pyjamas, we are yet to find one that stacks up against the humble spreadsheet… because when it comes down to it, there is really no need for bells and whistles; just a simple, clear and concise way to capture information and plan your journey.
This was the concept behind our easy-to-use and fully editable Journey Planner spreadsheet. We now include this as part of our Motorhome Plus package. It’s the perfect place to capture all the information for your trip. With all the major categories set up ready for you to add your own data and make it your own.
Plus, to give you even more of a head-start, your Journey Planner comes pre-populated a basic 32 day plan. Included are suggestions where it would be a good to add extra days and need for rest days along the route.
From here, you will then be able to book key campsites and activities prior to departure. While this is a remote route, it is busy, and we strongly suggest booking as much as you can if you specifically know where you want to stay on what day, to avoid disappointment. This is also true with any activities you wish to book too.
If you are planning on hiring a campervan on the Darwin to Perth route, this is a game changer.
