Hi Bernie,

Can't help you from the NT to Warburton, but have recently travelled from Laverton to Warburton on the 3rd of June and the road was like a high way with some road works around 60 k's east of Laverton. Due to heavy rain forecasted around the Neal Junction area we had to change our trip plans from the Connie Sue & Anne Beadell HWY's and headed for the Heather HWY, Gunbarrel and back down the old Hunt Oil Road to the GCR - bit wet and over grown but a very nice trip. Once back on the GCR after the rain there were some muddy/wet patches heading back to Laverton but easily avoided and also some small corrugations - mainly due to all the traffic heading to the Fink Desert races I think.
Tjukayirla road house is a great place for a stop, very friendly staff and the burgers are great.
Have a great trip :)

Hi Julebern
Its been open and closed a bit in the last month. Was open and OK with a good run last week, but I do not know if it was hit was last Saturday's rain. Try calling the roadhouses.
