Boab tree at Vic River Gorge, NT


Tour 12: Carnarvon to Geraldton

Anecdotal note:

It is hard to describe this ride without bias, because for us, it was really difficult. We were riding in early December. It was very hot and humid, and we had to carry so much water to quench our daily thirst of 5 to 8 litres. This was made far worse by the strong winds we were met with nearly every day. It was heart breaking.

As a roadhouse owner told us “this isn’t a good time to be heading south. The winds always pick up in summer”. Too right! Our planning had so far been related to the wet/dry season and Australia’s predominant wind patterns. We hadn’t thought of local variations in the wind.
