Welcome to Katherine to Western Australia
The sealed Victoria Hwy − part of the Savannah Way − stretches 513km from Katherine to Kununurra in Western Australia. A 4WD will get you into a few out-of-the-way national parks accessed off the Victoria Hwy, or you can meander through semiarid desert and sandstone outcrops until bloated baobab trees herald your imminent arrival in WA. They sometimes call this part of the world East Kimberley, and it is indeed a stirring precursor to the glorious red-rock landscapes of the Kimberley further west.
All fruits, vegetables, nuts and honey must be left at the quarantine inspection post on the state border.
