Planning to travel along in June/July. Have GQ 4.2 diesel patrol. Is a snorkel absolutely necessary for crossings if rainfall remains normal for this time of year.Same applies for road to kalumburu.

Hi cloughie,
travelled the route last May, water didn't get past knee high, on crossings..... but to avoid clogging air filters snorkle recommended to avoid too much dust getting into engine, or dust out filters VERY frequently and watch out for "fritz's in britz's com'n the other way regards Ric

G'day Cloughie

June/July wont (shouldn't) be a problem with water crossings(unless you take a wrong turn on the Ivanhoe or simular).
As Hanson did say, a snorkel is worth its weight in our dusty envirnoment as too are regular checks and cleaning of filters.
As always if not sure about a crossings depth, it should be checked first. A very opportune time for a ciggie and a cold drink while the handbrake checks out the water I always say!!

Cheers WAL
