Some up to date info for intending visitors to the Pt Hedland / Karratha area - lots of water about. De Grey flowing very nicely, Yule very full and so, finally, is the Sherlock.
Quite a few of the minor rivers / streams between Pt Hedland and Roebourne have new water in them. Expect they will empty quickly, though.
Marble Bar Rd (from Gt Nthn Hwy) was closed on Sunday, most likely meaning (since the De Grey was flowing) that the Shaw and Coongan have also had a lot of water through them.
Have also heard (UNCONFIRMED) that the Fortescue (at the road house) also has a lot of water
All up, points to a very good camping season this year with most of the good spots having finally had a good flush.
Will be trying the Marble Bar road again this weekend and if I have any luck, will update this info again Sunday night.

Regards
Russell
