    I did this trip last year. I left Melbourne late June, went across to Adelaide, up the centre to Alice/Uluru and then onward to Darwin, via Broome:)I didn't have a 4x4 ,( just a very reliable all wheel drive, Forrester Subaru) but I still did loads of 4x4 stuff further up from Uluru, Gibb River Rd being one of these.
    Seeing as you have a 4x4 you really should check out the maps for off the beaten path stuff, there are many books and maps for this type of thing.I flick the pages of these in Newsagents:)
    Otherwise you will not find much 4x4 stuff:)
    There is also some great 4x4 online groups, just google 4x4 sites and you will find them, you can ask questions and these guys seem very experienced.
    I will email you next week.........I have a week off work and will be able to think!:)
