Driving Safety in Northern TerritoryThis website is made for the clients specially of the travel agencies Goholi and Australia 4 Wheel drive Rentals and their websites including www.goholi.com.au and www.australia4wheeldriverentals.com and http://www.australia4tours.com/.
Expect the unexpected! Driving in country and remote areas of the Northern Territory is very different from city driving. The Northern Territory is large and it may take hours or even days to get from one town to the next. For this reason it is very important to plan your trip and know how far it is to the next town. Tell someone of your planned journey, including estimated time of arrival. It is important to plan your travel. Enjoy your visit to the Territory - don't become a statistic!

Rob's notes: My car hit a flood zone in 1989 and was swept sideways on the Arhem Highway in February. Luckily it was a mercedes and heavy enough to withstand the full force of the flood wave. An hour earlier I went down the road and there was nothing. I always suggest to our clients (many are friends) a few additional tips apart from the offical advice.
The golden rule - make sure everyione in the car has the their seatbelt, baby seats, booster seat properly adjusted and fasten before the key turns in the ignition.
Seriously - don't drive at dusk, dawn or night.
Don't talk on a phone whilst driving -
Both hands on the wheel to correct vehicle action in an emergancy.
Don't drink whilst driving.
If there is a passenger please have them also talk to you a bit to keep your mind alert and active and keep a second pair of eye's alert around you and on the road.
Roadtrains are big and long - by careful when you see one.
Especially watch the rail crossing going into Batchelor
Especially watch the heavy trucks entering on the Arhem Highway around and past the Bark Hut Inn area and at the Compass entry in Batchelor see www.litchfieldnationalpark.com
Water crossings - especially at Twin Falls quiet a few hire cars have been in difficulty at this crossing.
Always be alert as often it's the oncoming vehicle that may have difficulties which will affect your travel path.I.E. I have seen tourists in a hire vehicle swerve only 100m in fornt of us onto our lane so as to miss Kitty Hawks on the Arhem Higway during a burnoff in Sept 9th, 2009.
In the Northern Territory you name it we have it cows, wild horses, wallabies, kanagroos, 1000's of camles, large eagles on the road and much much more.
Especially if there is one driver please stop and get out and stretch your legs often (carefully)
Drink the required amount of water always.
Tourists not used to the sun and roads have told me quiet often to warn others of the flickering of light thru the branches and trees - it can be rather hypnotic at times.
We have very long straight streches of road on the Stuart Highway, Kakadu Highway and Arhem Highway that are NOT to be treated as a speedway. 4WD and large motorhomes are not meant to be pushed but to be enjoyed.
Rollovers - Please note there are stretches of road where severe weather has worn the edge of were the sealed road meets the dirt/gravel side of the road. The drop here can be as much as 3 inches or 7cm app. If both wheels get caught on this it will hinder your driving. Drive slow and keep to the sealed section and please concentrate carefully with both hands on the wheel. Road's NT do try their best to maintain the roads.
