We are planning a trip to the tip with 4 vehicles, 3 will be doing the OTT. the 4th is our parents in a new Pajero sport and they prefer to stick to the PDR. If we separate during the day is it possible to meet at campsites at night? I hear many people deviate off the PDR to view the river crossings on the OTT but i have no idea how long (hours/kilometers) the detours are and if a standard vehicle with novice drivers could make these detours with confidence? What maps do you recommend and do you have any suggestions on how this trip could work? Can you get to Fruitbat falls / Elliot falls via the PDR and detouring as suggested above? We are a family of 7 so we would be relying on our parents to take 2 children and shared camping equipment/food ect so need to meet up at the end of each day. (alternatively we will tow the campertrailer and remain independent to fit all 7 of us).
