But from the Gong, unless your looking for a 'prettier' drive, I'd head Marulan - Goulburn - Wagga Wagga - SPAMER - Barossa Valley - Adelaide. Km ? (Shorter )

Suggest with your car you investigate the options of installing a secondary transmission cooler. We nearly blew the Tribute to bits with the constant gear changing that occurs when towing a (up to) 1 tonne C/T.
BTW, it's beautiful country out there. I'd go back in a heart beat.
Suggested route, via GWH to Dubbo, Broken Hill, Yunta, Peterborough, Port A, then up the middle from there. No need to go via Adelaide unless you need to.
A list of spares should include top and bottom radiator hoses, engine oil, coolant, trans oil etc. Suggest you also upgrade to NRMA premium roadside assist in the week or 2 before you leave.
Happy trails and let us know how you go.
