Hello to All,
Does anyone know the present or recent condition of the Carson River Track please.
I read the last posting of a young couple late last year who travelled most of it from Kalumburu down just past the Berkeley River but retreated after two days of heavy duty forging their way further south. Then another group came past and pushed through to Home Valley and then met them in Kununurra a week later. Great story!
Best regards

We explored Carson Station (including the King George Falls) in 2006 and drove from Home Valley to Oombulgurri in 2007.

Carson Station was not so difficult.
It took some time to get permission, but it is now leased, so may be easier - not sure.

The Carson Track from Home Valley was a different question.....tough country that!
It took over a year to get the permissions to do this and we could have gone right through, but the Toyotas may have struggled with fuel.
56km in 3 days....

Many thanks Peter,
Looks like a slow trip but rewarding.
The info I listed being most recent means there has been only one 'wet' since their trip so hoping for some info over the last 3 months after access was possible.
Again many thanks and safe travels!

Many thanks Colin for your reply.
Good luck with the trip and look forward to your comments.
I am most envious whilst considering a similar trip sometime.
