Drove from Mt Augustus to Meeka a couple of years ago in the beginning of Oct the road was getting graded at the time. There is a lot off the road sealed now and the gravel is well graded.
I was towing a jayco off road eagle speed was around 90 k had no trouble at all

Found all those Pathway roads to be in very good condition. Travelled most with a 3.5 ton van in tow. For me the best speed around 80. Things tend to happen a bit slower.

Travelled to Mt Augustus from Meeka via the Mt Gould Road 2 weeks ago - excellent condition, you should have no problems if that is the road you intend to take.
Left Mt A. via the Cobra/Dairy Ck Road to pick up the road to Gascoyne Junction where we stayed 2 nights in order to make a day trip to Kennedy Range (wow!). On the way to Kennedy we saw a portion of the Kingsford Smith cobbled road ( sign posted).
Hope this helps,

Hi John n Min, if you are going to the Kennedy Ranges, try and make time to have a look at the West side, Mooka mine etc.
I think you will find the visit well worth it, the contrast between the dry East side canyons, and the oasis water holes on the West side is amazing.IMO
