Yesterday we travelled over the Woodstock-Hillside-Marble Bar road, and it was in perfect condition. We entered from the Great Northern Highway Western end and travelled North East to Marble Bar. The first 60kms were bitumen (no doubt due to the numerous Manganese trucks using the road) and the remainder was good, hard formed gravel. There were a couple of areas where recent rains have washed the road out slightly but they are not an issue.

I would happily drive a 2WD vehicle on it.

S are you now Bungarra? We are currently at the Marble Bar caravan park. Gosh it is hard being in a park after so long in lovely bush camping or at least so far away from others at Karijini...

LL16, Karijini is spectacular and the gorges will not have changed since your visit. But the number of people visiting will have changed hugely. The Dales campground has hundreds of sites all well spaced and in various sizes. Dales fees are more than easonable at $10 a night for a site ($6.40 seniors fees). But the Aboriginal owned Eco Resort over at what was previously Savannah camp is now $20 per person a night for a camp site. Yes that is $40 a night for an unpowered site! And not as nice as Dales.

No we did not go to Ruddall River.
