Gove Toyota BMXNT Titles 2018

The Nhulunbuy BMX club is proud to be hosting the BMX NT Titles in 2018 and for those thinking of visiting our wonderful part of the world, here are a few facts….

Driving

Distance – 670 kms from the Stuart Highway turnoff to Nhulunbuy via the Central Arnhem Hwy

Fuel – available at Mainoru (check store for hours) and Bulman (understood to be 24 hour)

Road – 610 kms of a graded unsealed road. Generally in good condition - will take around 8 to 9 hours in October (pending any unforeseen rains).

If towing, an off-road trailer / camper is recommended, mainly due to the long-distance driving on unsealed roads. Camper trailers regularly travel the road.

A permit is required from the Northern Land Council, and can be applied for online (www.nlc.org.au) which will advise where it is permissible to visit along the way.

Air travel

Daily flights from Darwin to Nhulunbuy with Air North. You can book through the Qantas site, often it is cheaper.

We have been told that group bookings are available direct through Air North, and it may be possible to charter the entire aircraft.
