We were there in September last year and it was hot, dry and dusty! The roads and internal tracks were appalling with corrugations, big rocks sticking out and bulldust 2 feet deep! It was the only time we could get away, soo wish we could have gone just after the wet as it would have been brilliant. It's a super interesting place and very friendly people. They've got it all : big fish, crocodiles, wild cattle, mineworkers staying there, remoteness, springs, fabulous waterholes, a bar and food available too. It's a really interesting place. Fuel is available too. Cheers Toni
