Boorroloola to Stuart Hwy is Bitumen
Normanton to Boorroloola is mainly gravel.

That should read "mainly very rough gravel" and with a few very rougher rocky sections thrown in as well....and the odd creek crossing , that is the way it was last year between Hells Gate and Boorroloola but we took our time and actually enjoyed it

Normanton to Boorroloola is gravel, can be rough and watch (be careful) travelling to close to the end of the wet.
Carpentaria Highway (Boorroloola to Stuart Highway bitumen) Stuart Highway thru to Top Springs Buchanan Highway (also known as the Muranji Track) mostly unsealed usually well looked after. (Caveat) or was when i lived up that way.

If you are planning to travel the Savannah Way this early in the season Marty, check NT Road Reports for cautions and restrictions. You may like to phone Wollogorang for on the spot updates.

Just a thought; Wollogorang was closed at one stage, but I think it opened again - others will confirm.Doomadgee Roadhouse on the Queensland section if Wollogorang is closed.
