G,Day members.
Been trying to get as much info as possible about the GJR on all the past threads, but can't find exactly what I'm looking for.-----Heading along that track next week from Alice to Marble Bar, and using my Hema books/maps etc (-I'm an oldie and not IT savvy) I'm unable to get a detailed look at the actual Gary Junction.---When we arrive at that junction is there any directions to Kunnawarritiji.---Jenkins track is listed, but from what I can see, there are a few other tracks heading off in different directions.---i.e south on the Gary Hwy,etc ---Is Jenkins track shown at all with a sign?, and does it come out north or south of Kunnawarritji on the Canning.
Also was wondering how many days to do it moving along steadily but sensibly with overnight camps----bit of a shame we have to rush it, but can't be helped
Thanks for any help......Sapper D

Hi Sapper,

A picture tells a thousand words, 4 pictures maybe more.




Looking for adventure.
In whatever comes our way.

Alice Springs to Carawine Gorge 5 days.
You won't get out of Carawine Gorge in less than 4 days :)

Cheers,

I took it as he was in a hurry to get to Marble Bar, didn't think Carawine gorge was on the list?

Sapper, Equinox gave you the best answer possible .. :-)
You'll see when you get there, it's pretty straight forward, just as the piccies show.
It's a good fast road for the most part, and also recently graded.

Cheers
Al

G'day SapperD,
It's about 1770km from Alice to Marble Bar. We refuelled at Kintore, (645km from Alice) which has very unusual opening times. Monday to Friday 9.30,10.30,11.30 - 2.30,3.30,4.30 -- Saturday 9.30, 10.30, 11.30 - Closed Sunday. All subject to the discretion of the attendants. Try to get local info from travellers west to east. A Police patrol dropped in on us at a campsite west of Papunya and told us the fuel information for Kintore on the HEMA map was not correct.
We also met other police patrols at Well 33 and Carawine Gorge, where they smoked their tyres up on the pebbles.
5 Days should do it. Head west and keep the 44 gallon drum on your left at the Gary Junction :-))

Enjoy the trip,

Bill

Thanks everyone for your tips, they"ll all help plan the rush trip that much easier---( don't suppose there'd be anything like those great Tjukayirla burgers out there would there--lol)
Thanks again --appreciate it.......Sapper D
