I'm planning a trip that includes travelling the Old Gunbarrel Highway (Warburton to Warakurna Roadhouse) and interested to know how many days it has taken people to travel the Old Gunbarrel Highway?

Thanks in advance.

Did it very comfortably in 2 days. Nice drive.


Make sure you give back more than you take

We did it in 2006. We planned to do it in 2 days, but it started raining overnight in Warburton, and by the time we reached the Rawlinsons, we were driving through water, and we had no real alternative other than to drive on to Warakurna, where we arrived that night. The GCR was closed by this time, and 2" rain had fallen during the day.
We documented it on video fortunately.
It was an interesting trip.

Thanks for the replies Dunc & Laurie. I'll plan on 2 days. Hopefully it won't rain too much! Been out that way before when it has rained and certainly makes for an interesting trip.

We did a section between the Gary Highway and the Heather Highway and it was fantastic, nice camp spot at Camp Beadell from memory it has a very high star rating. There were spots where rain had fallen and made for some interesting moments but was great,

I personally wouldn't plan to stay at Warburton again, but it was nice to have our weekly shower after being in the Desert for a while.
