Nice trip. Where did you drive from?

I did a trip from Melbourne. It would have cost about the same.

I'd fly to Cairns and hire a 4wd next time. Same for the Kimberley. I reckon the cost for 2 people is almost the same as driving by the time you include fuel, caravan parks, food, tyres, and wear and tear though.
