I'm doing a locum in Broome from early October to mid January and thinking of driving to combine some sight seeing and avoid flying the dog. Apart from the heat, just wondering about flooding of roads. I'm thinking it would be okay to go up the Stewey Highway and across in early October. That's too soon for those roads around NT and upwards to be flooded generally isn't it? On the way back I thought just straight down the highway through the Pilbara. Anyone done it at that time of year?
