  • 1. MAZDA LIFE APRIL 2005 PAGE: 10/11 TOP ROADS TO CRUISE IN YOUR MAZDA If it’s adventure, diversity, gourmet food, local wine and relaxation you’re after – pack your bags and get ready to take your Mazda on an unforgettable journey! There is so much to see and do in Australia and a self-drive holiday is the perfect way to discover our amazing country. Here are a few roads we think are worth Zoom-Zooming down … A MAZDA ‘TRIBUTE’ TO THE SAVANNAH WAY … The Savannah Way is considered the ‘adventure drive of Australia’. The 3700km route runs from Cairns in tropical Queensland to Broome in Western Australia – passing through Katherine in the Northern Territory along the way. Reasonably new to the tourist map, this route passes through some of Australia’s most spectacular scenery including five World Heritage areas, over 15 national parks, the world’s longest lava tubes, historic goldmining towns, outback cattle stations, Australia’s oldest pub and a wealth of indigenous culture. The ultimate way to discover the Savannah Way is in your Mazda Tribute. As you head off on an adventure, it doesn’t mean leaving comforts behind. With its luxury appointments, ability to read road and traffic conditions and 4WD capabilities – the road is yours. Soak up stunning tropical Cairns, the Great Barrier Reef and ancient World Heritage-listed rainforests in Queensland before heading off on your rugged experience. Located in the heart of the Gulf Savannah, Queensland, the historic gold-rush town of Croydon will take you back in time with its beautiful buildings and sites, and teach you tales of the town and its people. Joining the outback towns of Timber Creek, Katherine, Larrimah, Mataranka, Daly Waters, Cape Crawford and Borroloola in the Northern Territory, this section of the Savannah Way is classic ‘top end’ country with great fishing spots, Australian wildlife and old tin pubs that offer the perfect excuse to stop and chat with the locals over a well deserved drink.
  • 2. MAZDA LIFE APRIL 2005 PAGE: 10/11 One of Katherine’s main attractions, the Katherine River, provides an ideal opportunity for outdoor pursuits including fishing, bird watching, swimming and canoeing – and if that gets all a bit too tiring, head to the Katherine Hot Springs which provide the ideal sanctuary for total relaxation. Appropriate for its name - Keep River will ‘keep’ you busy with excellent bush walking tracks that explore the rugged terrain, while in Gregory National Park go 4WD driving in your Mazda Tribute to see the spectacular gorge scenery, rare wildlife species and significant traces of Aboriginal culture. Regardless of whether you’re starting or ending your driving journey in Broome – don’t forget to saddle up for a camel ride along Cable Beach. Riding under the tropical sunset to the sound of waves lapping in the background is an iconic experience you’ll be talking about for years. Don’t forget to send us a postcard too! When to go: There are two main seasons: the wet and the dry. The wet summer months, December to March, are hot and humid with heavy bursts of rain and thunderstorms, while the dry winter months of May to October are much cooler. Important tips: A couple of important things to remember for your journey along the Savannah Way: 1. Tempting as it might be to stop by the side of the road and take a swim in one of the rivers, think otherwise as they’re inhabited by both salt water and freshwater crocodiles. Many areas are sign-posted, however, this is not always the case, so don’t rely on that. 2. Whilst most of the road is sealed, Normanton, QLD, to Roper Bar, NT, is unsealed and it’s advised you check the road reports before taking off on your adventure during the wet season (December – March). Phone: 1300 130 595 for a 24-hour road report in QLD or visit Phone: 1800 246 199 for a 24-hour road report in NT or visit Phone: 1800 013 314 for a 24-hour road report in WA or visit Phone: RACQ 1300 130 595 or visit For further information or to plan your trip along the Savannah Way visit
