9-day Savannah Way road trip through Queensland

The Savannah Way road trip travels all the way across the country’s north from Western Australia to Queensland (or vice-versa). We’ve divided the journey into three sections as it passes through three of Australia’s states and territories. The entire Savannah Way can take upwards of three weeks to complete. You can do several sections independently, but if you’re ready to tackle this epic journey in its entirety, check out our other Savannah Way itineraries. Continue your route through the Northern Territory and complete the journey in Western Australia along the famous Gibb River Road.
