Hi Everyone,

As always there is a lot of incorrect info floating around about our roads.
At present I have folks phoning saying they heard it’s ALL open, then next phone call says they have been told it’s very wet and won’t open for WEEKS to come.
Both statements are rubbish.

The Gibb River Road is open all the way through, water levels are not high, it’s being graded. I have been told it’s really good at present.

The Kalumburu Road and the Mitchell Plateau Track ( Port Warrender Road) are not yet open. Water levels are not a problem it’s just a few small washouts need fixing.
A grader should start fixing the washouts in the next few days and the shire plans to be able to have the road open all the way to the Mitchell Falls before the 30 th April.

As for the opening of the Kalumburu road North from the Mitchell Falls turn off to Kalumburu, sorry don’t know yet.

We will be open for fuel and camping the day the road opens and open for all else on the 1st May as by then we will have had the first supply truck for the season.

Pls don’t call me to ask more as this is all I know, my phone is going non stop !
For these two North Kimberley roads just call SWEK on (08) 9168 4100.
They will be helpful give you the correct latest info.

Cheers, Anne

Thanks Annie.
Just remember to watch out for those Italian backpackers who 'dont speak English". I hope Sebastion is still there to help you out there !

They did get delayed in Kunnanura shortly after when they had a break down. Their attitude didnt go down there very well either.

Wish Bastie was here but regretfully their time allowed in Aussie ran out. Re: those backpackers you mention, it's handy not being able to speak English when you know you have done wrong isn't it !
That breakdown, well that couldn't have happened to more deserving people. Have a few of last years mob back again but after 15 years no Pam and Wayne this year, Pam's hip has given up on her. I will miss them heaps, as will all miss the great sensible info Pam constantly gave out.
cheers, Anne
