Aptly described as the ultimate Australian driving adventure, the Savannah Way spans a 3700 kilometre arc across the top of the country, stretching from Cairns and through the Gulf of Carpentaria to Broome.

Starting from the balmy climes of tropical Cairns, you'll see the magnificent Gulf safari grasslands and bow rivers around Normanton as you head towards the state border.

Crossing into the Northern Territory, you'll have the chance to visit the historic fishing town of Borroloola - a former haven for smugglers and cattle thieves, but now a respectable spot for a bit of fishing.

As you move through the territory, you'll see the awesome natural splendour of the Katherine region. Then, moving into Western Australia, you'll reach the town of Kununurra - the gateway to the North-West, one of the world's last great wilderness areas.

The Savannah Way ends in romantic Broome, the town bridges the majestic forests and rocky outcrops of the Kimberley, and the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.

Parts of the Savannah Way are intended for 4WD drive vehicles only, but there are large stretches of it that can be traversed in any reliable car.
