Hi Nikolas,

my Adelaide to Alice Springs trip was mid July (very belated trip report to 
come soon). Although we had poor weather for the first half of the trip it did 
get quite warm in the middle of the day once we were in the NT, say about mid 
20's. I would imagine this would be up around the mid to high 30's come 
January, maybe higher. 

One option would be to to taylor your trip so that you got up early and birded 
until it got hot and spent the hot part of the day driving to the next 
destination and birding the late afternoon/early evening, there are some pretty 
long drives on this trip. 

I don't know much about a Darwin to Broome trip but I think an Adelaide to 
Alice trip could be productive as long as you're prepared for some very hot 
days with periods of low bird activity during the middle of the day.

Hi all,
I'd like to plan a two-week trip in late December/early January with my parents 
who are visiting over Christmas to either
Adelaide to Alice/Ayres Rock to see the post-rain desert/outbackorDarwin to 
Obviously, the post-rain situation is something that cannot be postponed, 
that's why I would favour the post-rain desert trip. However, maybe the scenery 
of the Darwin/Broome trip would be more interesting for my parents. I know that 
in general December/January is not the greatest time of the year for either 
trip. In your experience, would any of these trips make sense at this time of 
the year?
 Would it be too hot to see many birds/mammals? Would it be miserable at this 
time of the year for my parents (who are not the youngest anymore)?
