This is more or less a thread to Al at Tjukayirla roadhouse, as I always think it best to ask locals for any info on their area,--much more reliable than govt depts.
Al, we're heading across the Anne Beadell and up thru your backyard to continue down the Connie Sue in a cuppla weeks,--can you advise on track conditions for that area, and/or any reports coming back to you,--good or bad-- ?
Will be calling in to camp overnight at your place about 15th May,---see you then

In case you hadn't noticed Andrew, members use this forum to swap info with each other, and pass on helpful tips etc, that's what it's for, and The Tjukayirla roadhouse has always been at the forefront with it's assistance to travellers in that area, and as a past and future customer of theirs, I'm sure they appreciate members keeping in touch with them.-maybe I'm wrong, but If they didn't want threads or contact, they wouldn't be E-OZ members. if Al doesn't want to reply, he wont, but I don't need you to correct me

Perhaps a more directed approach may result in a better result. I had to read the thread before I could ascertain that it was asking for a weather report from Al and Serena at Tjurkayirla. Not everyone reads every thread to see if it contains a question directed at them.

So, not intending to correct anyone, a little more specific information in a title of a thread or contacting someone directly can help expedite a relevant response. ;) Have a nice trip.

G'day Sapper D, Yes mate, we are always happy to reply to enquiries here, and yes, that's why we are members.
The weather at the moment is perfect, with low to mid 30 days, and nights just below 20. There is a chance of a few storms about later this week. Will keep this site updated of anything significant, but doesn't look at this stage that there'll be a lot.
I haven't heard any reports at all yet on the Anne Beadell or Connie Sue, apart from it was a bit rough around Yamarna so not much help there until we start getting some travellers through. One thing I can tell you is that if your coming up the Point Sunday Rd to the GCR is that it no longer gets graded at all and has been taken off the Shires maintenance list. But the GCR is in very good condition at the moment with some sections of corrugations, but nothing too drastic.
Look forward to seeing you through on the 16th May.

Oh, and for anyone else planning on travelling in May, there isa car rally coming through that will be camped at the Roadhouse on the 7th May (Warakurna on the 6th) with 200 cars, so will not be the most peaceful of nights for camping, so please keep that in mind with your dates :-)

Al and Serena

we had 2.2mm of rain overnight, and Laverton had 11mm. Road still all good.
Nothing in Warburton was probably a few showers to the South of us, but wouldn't really have been any more that what we got.
