Todays drive is something else. The whole day is spent on tight 4wd tracks. It’s rocky, sandy and muddy with heaps of river crossings. Today’s travel is first class.  We usually catch a Barra or 2 at our lunch spot so more than likely it will be fresh Barra on the BBQ tonight. As we continue south after lunch we are still driving some of the best tracks the NT has to offer before we get to our overnight camp at Kalkarinji and Barra for dinner.

Day 6. Kalkarinji to Nicholson River (Bush Camp)

After a morning stop for fuel and supplies at the Kalkarindji Community store we turn west on the Buntine Highway. The Buntine is one of the North’s great ‘Cattle Roads’. The driving today is very similar to day 3. We travel through vast tracts of grasslands. We are deep into the NT’s best Cattle Country. The driving today is a big change from yesterday. We get a chance to relax as we head into the afternoon sun, cross into Western Australia and our camp on the Nicholson River.
