EVENT: DRIVE 4 LIFE KIMBERLEY, WA
The 2016 Drive 4 Life tour in the Kimberley was another stunning success.
FOR THE first time in its 10 year history, the annual Drive 4 Life 4x4 tour ventured to the Kimberley region of Western Australia.
The not-for-profit event raises money for low-profile charity organisations – like Northcott, a Nsw-based charity that supports people with disabilities, and their families. Drive 4 Life has raised more than $748,000 for Northcott since the event began in 2006.
For the 2016 event, participants gathered at the starting point in Kununurra, where the convoy was split in two groups and sent in different directions to prevent traffic jams.
Group One went in an anticlockwise direction along Gibb River Road returning along the Great Northern Highway; Group Two took the clockwise route along the Great Northern Highway returning via Gibb River Road.
The day before the official event kicked off, Group One travelled 70km from Kununurra to Lake Argyle
Sharp rocks along the Pentecost River causeway. Crossing the Pentecost River didn’t need a life preserver this time.
