Starting from where ? Barcy to Aramac is easy ,Aramac to Muttaburra easy as well , BUT Mutta to Hughenden can be a pain if any rain ,the 200km of dirt can become 'no fun' ....

Just looking at a map is great but take alloy's advice because the roads and rules change, it is Queensland and things are a bit different in that state. Maps are only an indication.

I have gone to Townsville several times by going via Moree, Miles, Emerald , Charters Towers. It is also convenient to get to the PDR via Mareeba.
This is 2 lane bitumen up to Emerald and was 1 lane bitumen up to Charters Towers, but maybe 2 lane by now.

I have just completed a trip that included Mt Garnet, The Lynd, Hughenden, Muttaburra, Aramac.

Fair bit of dirt along that route.Hughenden to Muttaburra often less than 40 km/hr, particularly on the the little bitumen patches around creeks etc. The Lynd to Hughenden was mostly an OK dirt road, but with some slow sections too.

I wouldn't be put off if it was on your list of "Roads I want to drive", but if the name of the game is to get somewhere in a hurry, take the long route.
