Just completed the road from Glendambo to Wirrulla
Road condition up date :
The road for approx 150 km south of Kingoonya was as rough as rough as guts even though it's open
Badly rutted and washed out areas due to recent heavy rains
Road is drivable but definitely not enjoyable

Thanks John,

I just updated the road conditions section for this route with your recent information.

Safe travels

My wife heartily agrees that the sports bra rating is an essential piece of advice for off-road tracks !!

Sounds like a good idea Wildmax; it is hard to fold your arms and hang on to the grab handles at the same time :O LOL

Maybe a new road/track rating - sb1, sb2 etc. Only ladies can give a rating. Id rate the section of the Canning around Kunawarritji as SB5, closely followed by track to Mitchell Falls - sb4.5.
Cheers,

Amazing how these dirt roads change from one minute to the next. We went through there about this time 2012 and it was the last 150 k's that was rough - especially the sand dune section (corrugations). Nice changes of scenery though...
Sportz bra sounds like a great addition to the touring wardrobe and maybe something to keep my belly in tact as well :-)
