Raid Arnhem 2016 will start in Alice Springs on the 1st of August 2016 and will finish back in Alice Springs about a month later. The Raid route itself is subject to change as the actual survey has not been completed yet.
Be prepared for mostly bush camps, national parks and very few camp grounds.
From Alice Springs we will travel via the Tanami road, heading west then north through Judbarra national park then to Flora river nature park & on to Katherine.
From Katherine we head north to Pine creek.
Then through Kakadu national park, to Jabiru.
Exploration of Arnhem land follows, the final route is still to be decided but, taking in places such as Cobourg peninsula, Maningrida & Nhulunbuy.
We will exit Arnhem via Roper Bar heading south to Limmen national park & Barkly table lands, meeting up with the Sandover Highway back to Alice springs.
At this stage approximately 4500 Km.
In Arnhem Land we plan to do one days driving followed by a rest day.
Daily distances will be manageable & enjoyable throughout the Raid.
We hope to have registrations open after the survey is completed toward the end of the 2015 year..
Cheers Raid committee.
