Hi. Has anyone been through the Holland Track in the past 6 months?
What was its condition?
I’ve read some older threads that say it is full of bog holes, and is not the nice, gentle meandering trek it was?
I’ve done it several times but not since the mid 2000’s.

With the rain currently falling is WA, you will need a boat.

the HT is a shadow of what it used to be. Especially over the past year with no travel outside wa it's been hammered . Corrugations , ruts and big holes . chicken tracks for chicken tracks for chicken tracks. Honestly it's a shadow of what it is and the traffic can get ridiculous. don't think i will ever go back to do it as there are more interesting tracks and sights north of GEH

I was just researching the track last night after me bro said they wanted to travel it over Easter.

I've have heard it's a bit chopped up some parts of the northern section, though it was like that 10 years ago when I last traveled the whole thing.

Speaking of the whole thing, I do recommend starting in Broomehill - they have the starting obelisk and one of the big red direction signs pointing to Coolgardie (or Gnarlbine Rock I can't remember).

Easy driving but still plenty to see - it's all still the Holland Track.

If it's raining over Easter I probably won't go.

Cheers

I thought it was chopped up a bit in 2010 but I was a complete off-road rookie. I loved the whole experience and it was a springboard for more adventures.

It was much worse a couple of years ago.

It would take a lot to get me back.

Sad.

Starting from Broomehill is great - be sure to go into all of the Holland Track sites on the way, some interesting places.
My standard height 4WD was scraping in a number of places 3 years ago in areas where there are no chicken tracks (tea tree). Otherwise very dug out by the mud-boggers - never go into a mud hole without checking the depth!
