We intend to follow this route back from Quobba Station, But have no idea of what it's like.

Does anyone have any info on how remote it is and what the roads are like?
Also some ideas for free camps along the way would be nice.
We have a Dmax 4x4 along with an off road camper trailer.

Thanks

Hi Evaredy I've only travelled over sections of the route and in the main the roads were well graded gravel roads.Free camping is available all over the place and there are a number of abandoned outstations. Also at one of the renovated wells there is a huge camping area behind it. It's just a case of being respectful of the property owners rights and mindful of where you are and where the roaming cattle are watering. We generally found a nice spot to camp every night without problems.

Cheers

I just worry about camping in the wrong spot and don't want to upset any land owners.
I guess once we are on the road we will soon see somewhere to camp.
From the research I have done it seems as thought the roads are quite good gravel.

hi evaredy,we have just come back from 10 days away Perth ,Coalseam,1 night free camping along Beringarra Pindar road,1 night free camping on Dalgety downs Landor rd 2 nights at Mt Augustus one night at Kennedy range then Carnarvon, kalbarri ,Leeman then home.lots of driving but all dirt roads in great condition.Will definitely change if they have any rain .we had about 5 mm in Kennedy Range and turns to mud really quick.
lots of water in the rivers so wildflowers should be looking good.
beware of the midgees/sandflies,they dont usually like me but i got eaten alive second day away and have only just stopped itching
