Hope to do this trip in late April 2016. Interested to find out what the roads and crossings are like. Is it suitable for small semi offroad caravan? Tug is standard 120 series Prado. This question obviously relates to the unsealed sections. Look forward to hearing from someone who has done this trip. Cheers

Not a problem Kevin. The road between Mount Augustus and Landor is quite stony and can be hard on tyres. We did it years ago with a little old wind up caravan.

Hi Kevin. You should not have any problems at all. We have had two trips through the area in the last two years with 150Prado and Kimberley Karavan. Travelled Ullewarra Rd, Cobra Dairy Creek Rd and Landor Mt Augustus Rd. All reasonable gravel roads and usually well maintained. They can be rough at times depending on when last graded. Roads are used by road trains moving cattle so be prepared. As MH says roads can be stony and are thrown up by passing trucks, cars etc. However none of those roads were busy when we drove them in June/July period. Enjoy.

Forgot to suggest that you check road conditions with Murchison and Gascoyne shires before you go. Also I find that asking the locals, at the places you stop, about road conditions to be very helpful.

Hi Kevin,

Here is a link to the blog I wrote of our trip to Mt Augustus a few years ago. We were towing a 20 ft Jayco outback starcraft caravan and did it without any issues.

I hope you find it interesting and it helps to answer your question.
regards,
Heather
