Good morning everyone hope you are all well.
I was just wondering if there are many fuel stops between cooper pedy and Darwin looking on the maps there seems to be but Tim thinks a few of the roadhouses have closed
Ok that's my question so happy travelling and stay safe

Yeah mate....dozens of them. The only one I can think of that could be an issue might be Barrow Creek if they haven't got through their financial problems......

Barrow Creek was open late last October when we went through, we stopped to top up as I like to try & support the small places.

Has he had problems since then Hairy?

Not that I know of...............But for a long time he used to drive to Alice each day with a trailer load of 44's to keep his fuel supplies up, and would only sell enough to get you on to the next fuel stop at times. It went on for a long time and was a pain in the arse if you were planning on filling up.

I think the cooper "p" is up the other way to make a Coober.

There are a lot of people travelling that road all the time so fuel shouldn't be a problem.
Because of your tank size/range you will only require some of them, not all along the way.

Yes we found that when we came across the nullabor we found the roadhouses very expensive but that was almost 9 years ago
Cheers and thank you for your help

Be aware that the township of Larrimah, about 180Km south of Katherine, doesn't have a fuel station. To the north, Mataranka, and to the south, Highway Inn? do.

After tour guiding up and down that road for over 10 years I can say that every town has a fuel station the best thing that you can do is try to make it between the small palces as they are more expensive. but if you have range of 350km you will be ok. just as I said the towns are cheaper than the road houses.

Yep, Agree. Three ways V Tenant Creek is a classic example, rip off!
