Hi Olav,

Im Nathan, from England, but living in Fremantle, WA, and ride a KLR 650.

I am looking at doing the same trip, but then over to Asia in June 2014

I am just in early planning stages, and dont have a definite time scale yet, due to work etc.

My house mates have already done this trip, so i have lots of information!

So i am sure i could join you for part of trip or maybe more!
Also if you need help with anything, now you know some people in the area!

Nathan

Hi,

The Shitbox Rally (cars only) is doing Perth to Darwin via the Gibb River Road between May 31st and June 6th 2014. There will be 250 cheap rally cars on the route that week, plus support and catering vehicles. So it might be best to plan to reach Darwin before that.

Cheers,
Brett.

My understanding is that you get the permit online (google should help here) before you eave, and then carry the paperwork with you. I'm unaware of any gates or similar marking the boundaries of the aboriginal land.

Which way are you thinking of going?
