For great Australian travel this bundle includes Cape York, The Binns Track and On the Track of Burke and Wills. While all these destinations are off road, the 4 wheel driving is either easy or medium, or as in the case of Cape York can be avoided, if you wish. As all these destinations feature the Top End, they are best travelled between May and October.
Cape York is the most iconic destination in Australia. From Port Douglas to the Tip there is plenty of adventure and top fishing spots. The main road accesses not only Laura, Coen, Weipa and Bamaga, but also the sparkling Twin, Elliot and Fruit Bat Falls. For the real adventurous, take the Old Telegraph Track and be challenged by the highlights of the Cape, such as Gunshot, Cockatoo and Cannibal Creeks. And complete your adventure with a visit to the Tip, the most northerly point on the Australian mainland.
The Binns Track is a network of roads across Northern Territory from Mt Dare in the south to Timber Creek in the north. As an interesting alternative to the Stuart Highway, the Binns Track passes through a diversity of landscapes and environments from the tropical north to the arid desert of the south. Highlights include Gregory National Park, Devils Marbles, Davenport Ranges and Alice Springs. This is a fairly easy track for 4 wheel drive and suitable for off-road camper trailers.
Burke and Wills explored a route from Melbourne north to the Gulf of Carpentaria. In this video, a convoy group follows their route as closely as possible, visiting Swan Hill, Mungo and Mutawintji National Parks, the Dig Tree and Innamincka and completes their journey at the Gulf near Karumba. This is another diverse experience as you trace the pathway of these unlucky explorers in your 4 wheel drive and you can take your off-road camper too.
