me and my work mates on our day off, drove to duchess from mt isa and went up to cloncurry
and then turned around and went back via the tar.
awesome road!!, heaps of pot holes, washouts, corrigations.
i was driving a dual cab td hilux manual, empty tray and had a ball!!.
real country road! kind of been a while for me.
this was in dec last year though?
take it easy, drop into the pub, have a quick drink, dont think youd get a counter, just a microwave pie is whats on offer and keep going.
old school pub, early days...... feel about it.
take care with the caravan, dont drive over 80km/h. MAX. 70 even better.
they might of graded it by then.
some creek crossings, washouts realy need you to drop to 15 20 km even more soo with a van.
water wasnt an issue for us, mind you make sure you dont get on it when its rained before about a couple of days.
the road would turn to crap then.
definatly do that road!!
had a blast.

Thanks for that Mountainman,
Do it is unsealed from Duchess through to Cloncurry
then? You don't happen to know what the Dajarra Duchess bit is like do you?
If not we will ask before leaving Boulia
this morning, or when we get to Dajarra if I can find someone there to ask.
