Quick overview: The Long Paddock Drive from Brisbane to Broome will be mainly on bitumen roads but some dirt road travel should be expected. Those doing the optional Savannah way will find it is approximately 900 klms of dirt, bulldust and creek crossings. A quick trip out of Queensland across to Three ways NT, we turn north and head for visits at Katherine Gorge, Daly Waters, Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks, all locations from Darwin, Kununurra to Derby and Broome and then return to Cape Crawford, where the option is to head home via bitumen roads, or take the Savannah Way home. The trip will be approximately 70 days.

REGISTRATION FORM - EXPRESSION OF INTEREST - WAITING LIST
Please include my name as a possible attendee of the Long Paddock Drive and provide updates so I am able to make a decision on attendance or non attendance. A payment schedule will occur and my subsequent payment only then confirms my attendance on the Drive.
Please Note: Drive 'C' - Savannah Way
Environmental conditions prohibit booking in at any location due to possible delays, therefore, accommodation sites and tours will be contacted as the trip progresses. No fees will be collected for Drive 'C' for this reason with attendees required to pay as they go.
The time taken to complete Drive 'C' is fully determined by environmental and local conditions, so attendees should consider allocating an additional two weeks 'just in case' time to complete Drive 'C'.
