We drove Holland's Track from Broomehill to Coolgardie over the Easter weekend.
The trek notes from this site were a fairly accurate guide to the trip. Well done to the writer.

Good Luck !! Long distances of the track are just 6' wide. We travelled with both mirrors folded in for most of the trip. Height probably not such a problem if you are careful.
What are you driving ? I will give you my opinion as to whether to tackle the track or not. I drive a Landcruiser trayback with a canopy, it is exactly 6' wide.

Cheers, Brownie

It is a l/c camper but not a troopie It sticks out from the cab about the same distance as a normal tray but being a camper is far les robust and is 2.7m high. I am seriosly thinking about getting a normal trayback with a canopy coz I just cant get to all the places i want TA

If your camper is not much more than 6' wide then that won't be a problem. The height will require you to take more care - there are a few lurking branches ! Be prepared for the camper body to take a bit of punishment from the scrub on the sides of the track. The scrub is very thick and goes for quite long distances.
If you were to take it very steady, then you would probably be ok. We travelled at between 20/30 kph, you would need to go slower.
