Solo traveler headed for Sydney this spring

Hello everyone!

I am a 24-year-old female from Nashville, TN, and I'm planning to relocate to Sydney in late April-early May (or early June at the very latest, if everything goes south and I can't come up with the money in time.) The goal is to get a working holiday visa and spend 6 months to a year traveling around Oz, NZ, and Southeast Asia, so I'd love to hear from you if you're planning to do the same!

Best,

Kay

Darwin to Alice Springs - 4WD versus Camper

Hi,

I am traveling from Darwin to Alice Springs in early May planning to do the trip in 10 to 12 days, we are two adult males traveling and are wanting a vehicle we can sleep in. I am wondering if anyone has any advice on the pros and cons of doing the trip in a 4WD as a posed to a camper. My first thoughts where a 4WD but with the cost being almost double I am wondering if it is in fact needed.
Many thanks in advance.
