Darwin to Indonesia ???

Hi Friends,
Finally I am in Sydney, Australia and will be heading towards Darwin from where I plan to take a ship to Indonesia. On the shipment page I could not find much info. There are shipments to Dili but not Indonesia. Anybody shipped to Indonesia recently? Or those who shipped to East Timore, where did they go from there?
Thanks

Thumbs up

I know of several people who shipped to Dili and then over the land boarder into Indonesia. From there it's an easy matter of island hopping on small ferries across to Java. I don't have any exact details sorry.

Regards

Nigel in NZ

I live in Darwin and have met many riders who have come across from East Timor. Perkins shipping in Darwin is the biggest shipping Co but there are a few others.
Once you get to ET you need to cross the border to West Timor (check in Darwin to make sure the border is open) and then it is very cheap and easy to Island hop through Indonesia.
A few weeks before you get to Darwin flick me an e-mail and I will look after you when you get up here.

Hi Mick,

We will be coming from ET to Darwin. If a half rack of your favorite will buy a grassy place for a tent, name your poison.

Hey Mate,

Regarding your trip frm Oz-Indonesia, i think u should check with mmaarten on the HUBB, he did a RTW trip from Europe-Asia-Oz-South America-North America.
website Maarten's World. Also check Perkins Shipping Darwin
During his s.e.asia leg he went to Indonesia, Sumatera Island (Dumai) from Malaysia (Malacca) by ferry & then shipped his bike from Dilli (East Timor) to Darwin (But he himself had to fly on some scary piece of private air service)
East Timor was Indonesia before (I think, border crossings should be easy)

Good Luck!

Radzi

Sorry Rich!

i dint mean him (mmaarten) alone... its just a suggestion.
sorry for not noticing you Rich

was it you I saw on the way to Milford Sound in March 1999? (Just kidding)
It was raining & very cold (for me) I was on the Kiwi Experience coach heading to Milford Sound from Queenstown. Saw this biker on a Yamaha

Anyway: Anybody visiting the South Island, DONT MISS it! I reckon its one the most beatiful places on earth!

Sweet As

ps: After tasting the its fresh water Capt Cook named it Milford Sound but geographically its a fiord! fresh water remain on the surface, the rest is salty.
