Article Comment: Savannah Way

Hi all,
I'd like to take the savannah way back to the territory in my Prado. Looking for advice on the route and ease of navigation from Cloncurry. How much of the route is on dirt road and can I take it all the way to Mataranka or to daly waters? How much time would I need for the journey and what are the good places to stop along the way. Any help would be much appreciated!!

Just came across the Savannah way West to East. End June '17 to early July '17.
Sealed road from Mataranka halfway (or a little more) to Roper Bar.
Dirt road (we did 60-80km/hr) from there to the Qld border. Road for us (travelling East/south) was better in the beginning than the end, so for you it will gradually get better once you cross the QLD border.

The road on the QLD side from the border to Hells gate is probably the worst, just not as well maintained as the NT side. Still doing 60km/hr but more rocky/corrugated in places.

Trust this helps
