We have a few weeks off around July/August and we were thinking of 'doing' the Outback Way from Winton down to Laverton.

Has anyone been along this road lately and is in a position to comment on road conditions?

Also, from the outback way web site, I note that fuel stops appear to be every 200 to 300 kilometres with the longest stretch being 466 kilometres between Jervois and Boulia - is this what you have found?

Thanks,

PeterF.

Hi Peter,

Tobermorey Station has reopened to the public and according to it's entry in "places" on this site, it sells fuel. It's located just west of the Qld border.

I went there in November.
It certainly looked like it sold fuel, bowsers etc.
No one around, honked the horn, shouted, knocked on the door, my dog was barking - no one there...


Looking for adventure.
In whatever comes our way.

G'day Peter,

Conditions at the moment are mostly good (NT border to Laverton side) although fairly corrugated 120km's west of us and through to Laverton.
This of course will change many times between now and August, so feel free to give us a yell before you travel to check on conditions at the time.

Cheers
Al

Do a Google for the Grey Nomads they have just released a DVD of their travells from Winton to Laverton down the shortest longest route - the Outback way. Interesting viewing.
