Northern Territory & Kimberley

Overview: The Northern Territory & Kimberley are some of the most spectacular regions in Australia. Highlights in the Top End include Darwin, Kakadu, Litchfield and Katherine Gorge. The Kimberley is synonymous for Broome, the Bungle Bungles and the attractions off the Gibb River Rd such as El Questro, Emma Gorge, Windjana, Bell Gorge & Tunnel Creek. If you are planning to vist the Red Centre make sure you include Alice Springs, Uluru, Kings Canyon and the McDonnell Ranges.

Roads: The roads in the Northern Territory and the Kimberley range from first-class, all-weather sealed roads such as the Stuart Highway through to iconic 4WD tracks such as the Gibb River Rd. To make a general statement about the condition of any dirt road in the region would be misleading because road conditions could vary from good condition after it has just been graded to very rough with scours, washouts and water over flood ways and creek crossings if there has been recent rain.

What does Bluey mean?

Pronounced Blue'ē, it means the collection of possessions carried by a person travelling in the Outback.

Australian Dictionary in 1899: "There's the everlasting swaggie with a bluey on his back who is striking out for sunset on the never-never track".

In the early days you needed food & water to travel in the Outback, these days you need a vehicle and the right information. Our business was created to help people who want to travel through the outback independantly (Self Drive). The obvious name for our business was Bluey.

** The word bluey is also used to refer to a person with red hair.
