Today was a bit of a long haul. We had thought of stopping between Kununnurra and Katherine but in the end nothing really appealed. The road winds through some nice escarpments as you leave WA but then becomes quite flat.
So we thought we would post some statistics of our trip so far. Some are big, none are scary, and some we don't believe either.
