Would this trip be suitable for soft roaders? The in laws (Subaru outback) and sister in law (Nissan X-Trail) have said they are interested in doing the trip

Mate the Exy is pretty capable in certain areas but the best thing to do is get them to join the Australian Xtrail Forum if they haven't and get feedback from members who might have done more difficult parts of the itinerary.When in the NT last time we meet a guy with a Exy towing a CT and he had just done all over the Gibb River etc.No Probs .Difficult sand areas could be a problem.

The only part that is a bit of a bump is the Merrinie Loop (SP) that is really corrugated but apart from that you should be OK. Getting in to Gem Tree is easy as is Palm Valley if you are doing that. I'd say go for it. Just some good tyres I would say.

Didn't think it would be a problem.

Hi JCOJ and friends,

We are in!

Sarah and I are keen to visit the red centre this year with our two boys (Jos 7 and Caleb 5), so we have decided to take two weeks off work and join in the fun.

As we only have two weeks, we will join in with you guys at Kulgera and part ways at Owen Springs. We are going to travel up there via the Flinders and Oodnadatta and then scoot back home to Adelaide down the black stuff.

We will be towing our Jayco Swift behind the trusty 2012 diesel SR Hilux.

Woo hoo! Can't wait now!

Cheers, Paul

Hey - I think we will be in the area filming then. Can you lot keep your shirts on if you're in the shots?

Carlisle

The official dates for this trip will be 28th June until 14th July, 2014. - 16 days.

The gathering will be in around the Alice Springs area.

Time to lock in your annual leave :)

I will post an itinerary by the end of August which will incorporate ideas already given to me by PM and posts already made.

There is heaps to do and see around this area so it should make for an excellent trip.

Were off on an 8 week trip as of 1st July. Heading up the centre and along the top from Tenant Creek.
Hopefully we can catch up with a few people from here.

Cheers,
George
